The Beehive Fire burning north of Nogales has grown to about 10,500 acres, Coronado Forest officials said Tuesday.
Some 250 people are working to put out the forest fire which started on Friday June 30.
Containment was around 20%, officials estimated on Tuesday.
Helicopters carrying out bucket work will continue to be used to fight the blaze, but retarder-equipped planes are on standby, officials said.
Smoke was expected to be minimal Tuesday, but firefighters continue to deal with extreme heat and low relative humidity, officials said.
Meanwhile, the much smaller Corral Nuevo wildfire, about two miles north of the Beehive Fire, held at about 150 acres. It was about 85% contained, officials said Monday afternoon.
The Corral Nuevo fire also started on Friday.
