Bush declares disaster in Arizona
''We're kind of used to big fires out West,'' Bush said, ''but this is the biggest of big fires.''

In a single week, the blaze has blackened 375,000 acres or 586 square miles - an area larger than Los Angeles - and there is no containment in sight. Smoke has spread across the Southwest and was seen as far south as Las Cruces, N.M.

The wildfire, formed by two smaller blazes that merged Sunday, is the largest in Arizona history. A lost hiker started one fire trying to signal for help. The other fire is believed to be human-caused, but the exact origin has not been determined.

Smoke forced authorities to close a section of U.S. 550 north of Durango.
