[A summary of other Arizona fires is also in this story]

A wildfire burning through a drought- and pest-ravaged forest Monday forced authorities to close a stretch of Interstate 40, the main route across northern Arizona. The route reopened about 8 p.m. Monday

The "Lizard" fire had burned 1,400 acres of piƱon pine and juniper forest about 14 miles east of Flagstaff. As it approached I-40 from the south, the state Department of Public Safety closed an 18-mile stretch in both directions because of smoke and flying embers.
