A wildfire burning east of Tucson, Arizona, had grown to almost 7,000 acres by the early hours of June 23, prompting evacuations and road closures locally.

Footage shared on Twitter by @_thetalldwarf shows tailbacks on Interstate 10 towards Dragoon, which authorities said was closed on Tuesday due to the Walnut Fire but had reopened later that day.
