Emergency crews have set up a shelter for evacuees of a wildfire in northeastern Arizona's White Mountains ... that has scorched more than 8 square miles.

According to the Associated Press, the Red Cross opened a temporary shelter Saturday , because 90 structures in three communities could be threatened by the blaze.

Windy conditions pushed the San Juan fire near Vernon, Ariozona past key containment lines Friday.

There have been no reported injuries. The fire is about 135 miles east of Phoenix, near the New Mexico line.
