    (NECN/NIFC: Apache Co., Ariz.) - The 16-day-old wildfire in Eastern Arizona is about 10% contained.

    It is one of the worst fires in the state's history.

    Nearly 3,000 people are still under an evacuation order.

    Firefighters say they are finally gaining ground against the flames. They say strong winds are actually helping, since they are burning off fuel in the central part of the state.
