Fire crews are working to suppress a group of fires that are believed to have been started by lightning earlier this week in Tonto National Forest.
The fires range in size from less than an acre to 280 acres, though fire officials say that only one of the fires is showing activity as of Friday evening.
The Mistake Fire, in the Tonto Basin Ranger District, grew from around 70 acres to almost 200 acres on Friday, calling for additional resources.
Crews are battling the seven fires by ground and air as some of the fires are inaccessible and on steep terrain.
Despite recent monsoon moisture, high temperatures are making the fires more difficult to work with and more dangerous for firefighters.
