Four homes have been destroyed and more than 120 are threatened by a wildfire in Sonoita, officials said Wednesday morning. Some 100 firefighters are fighting the Encino Fire which they say so far has burned eight structures, including the four homes, and spread to more than 1,300 acres, officials said. Power is out in a lot of the area because several power poles were burned, though crews were working to restore power where it is safe to do so. The Encino Fire began about 8 p.m. Tuesday forcing evacuations around Sonita, which is about 45 miles southeast of Tucson.
