ALBUQUERQUE, May 26 (UPI) -- The Whitewater-Baldy wildfire in southwestern New Mexico has grown to 82,252 acres, burning 12 cabins and 13 outbuildings in a subdivision, authorities said.
The fire, which was zero percent contained, led to a voluntary evacuation of the town of Mogollon, N.M., KOAT-TV, Albuquerque, reported Saturday.
Winds were expected to continue hindering firefighters battling the blaze Saturday and Sunday.
What had been separate wildfires -- the Whitewater and Baldy fires -- merged into one fire Wednesday.
More than 600 fire personnel were camped out but authorities said it could take a few more days to get the blaze under control.
Meanwhile, a brush fire near Disney World led to the closing of a major central Florida highway for more than two hours Friday.
CNN reported flames as high as 6 feet near Interstate 4 and white and gray smoke could be seen over and around the highway much of the afternoon at the beginning of the busy Memorial Day weekend.
Kim Montes, a spokeswoman for the Florida Highway Patrol, said eastbound lanes of the highway were shut down by 3 p.m. around Osceola Parkway and troopers closed westbound lanes soon after.
The highway reopened in both directions by 5:30 p.m., Montes said.
