TUCSON, Ariz. -- Crews are battling a wildfire on the Tohono O'odham Indian Reservation southwest of Tucson and a brush fire on the Babacomari Ranch in Sonoita.

The wildfire on the reservation was at more than 200 acres on Wednesday afternoon with no containment.

It was reported about 8 p.m. Tuesday burning southwest of the village of Pan Tak, which is south of Arizona 86 and east of the community of Sells.

Tribal officials say no structures are threatened and there are no evacuations.

The cause of the wildfire is under investigation.

The brush fire on the Babacomari Ranch was at about 450 acres and burning south of the Mustang Mountains on private land.

Authorities say the blaze was started Wednesday afternoon by a vehicle fire that spread into the brush.
