Smoke will be visible for days or possibly weeks in south-central Arizona where crews continue to strengthen the perimeter around a wildfire.

Nearly 1,000 firefighters focused Sunday on monitoring and mopping up the fire lines around the blaze south of Superior.

Fire officials say the Telegraph Fire, which has burned nearly 138 square miles (357 square kilometers), is 76% contained.

The Arizona Senate’s Ethics Committee is set to consider whether a complaint against a Republican lawmaker merits discipline.

The meeting scheduled Tuesday comes after a report into allegations made by an assistant to Sen. Wendy Rogers found little corroboration for some of his complaints.

But the Senate attorney who investigated the allegations found backing for his contention that she raised her voice and cursed during a heated confrontation in her office.
