The Spring fire was reported on Tuesday afternoon and is burning west of Amado in the Baboquivari Mountains. So far it has burned 15 to 20 acres.

A second fire, the Guadalupe fire is burning near the Arizona-New Mexico border, about 30 miles east of Douglas.  The fire began burning on Tuesday morning and has grown to 250 acres.  Most of the land burned is in a remote area, but fire crews are working to keep some ranch buildings about two miles from the flames, from burning.

The cause of the fires is under investigation.
