By David Schwartz PHOENIX (Reuters) - Firefighters battling a major wildfire in northwestern Arizona on Monday reported progress in containing the blaze that has forced people out of about 1,000 homes and charred nearly 6,800 acres. Officials said an estimated 300 firefighters took to the ground and the air early on Monday expecting to announce some degree of containment for the Willow fire in the Mohave Valley, about 30 miles southeast of Bullhead City, Arizona. "We're definitely encouraged by what we're seeing right now," said Dolores Garcia, a Bureau of Land Management spokeswoman. "We're just waiting to see if the lines we have on the ground will hold." The fire was one of dozens burning across the drought-parched U.S. West on Monday, many of them started by lightning strikes.
