The Gladiator fire continues to grow at a high rate, now standing at over 6,500 acres, and still 5% contained.
The Gladiator fire has more than tripled since Wednesday morning.
Southerly winds continue to blow the fire north, away from Crown King.
There are more issues than weather though.
Michael King, with the Southwest Type 1 Incident Management Team said, "There’s extreme fire behavior because of the rate of spread, the dryness of the fuels, [and] the rugged, steep canyons.”
