For the first time in more than a week, crews have made some headway in the fight against a major wildfire in Arizona's eastern mountains.

It's destroyed dozens of buildings and kept thousands of evacuees away from their homes.

Officials said the 603-square-mile blaze is now 5 percent contained. Helicopters and a large air tanker dropped fire retardant, and ground crews burned combustible materials nearby.

The fire is close to becoming the biggest blaze in state history.
