Arizona wildfires force thousands to flee homes

A huge wildfire in the US state of Arizona that has forced thousands from their homes continues to grow as the blaze rages for a 10th day.

The so-called Wallow fire is now the second-largest in the state's history.

Winds fuelling the flames drove the last hold-outs from Greer, a small town near the New Mexico boarder, and threatened 7,000 residents nearby.
