TUCSON, Ariz. -- Firefighters from multiple agencies are working to contain the Robles Fire that Arizona Forest officials say sparked Wednesday in Cochise County.

Smoke was reported in the area along I-10 and Dragoon Road. The Arizona State Forestry says the fire is about 40 acres and moving northeast through grass and brush.

At this time, no structures are threatened.

Officials are expected to get a better acreage on Thursday during daylight hours.
