In Arizona, the Goodwin Fire burning in the Prescott National Forest has grown to 20,000 acres and is only 1% contained.
Yavapai County Emergency Management Coordinator Denny Foulk said there are about 2,000 residents in the area affected by the fire and 3,000 structures in the evacuated area were at risk but officials were not immediately sure how many are homes.
"Not only do our hearts go out to those who have been displaced, but ... as always, we are indebted to the firefighters, first responders and local community leaders who are managing and fighting this fire, as well as the many other fires throughout the state right now".
The fire started Saturday from an unknown cause. The Frye Fire is about 70 miles (120 km) northeast of Tucson, the second-largest city in Arizona.
Arizona Governor Doug Ducey declared a state of emergency Wednesday, directing $200 thousand of emergency funds and hundreds of emergency workers toward beating the Goodwin Fire.
Diane Souder, a spokesperson for the fire, said Tuesday at 5:50 p.m. MDT resources working on the fire included 2 air tankers, 4 helicopters, 29 engines, and 525 personnel.
A 400-acre (162-hectare) fire in Mariposa County on the western Sierra foothills is 10 per cent surrounded.

Utah firefighters braced Wednesday for more high winds as they try to slow a stubborn wildfire that has burned 13 homes and forced the evacuation of 1,500 people from a ski resort town.
The plan to burn a stand of black spruce between the fire and the highway will only be implemented if the blaze picks back up, Prescott said, and the surrounding residents would get at least 24 hours notice.
In Los Angeles County, fires that flared dangerously close to Hollywood Hills and Burbank homes have been knocked down.
"It's scary because we're coming up on the four-year anniversary of the Yarnell Hill fire - there's still a lot of fresh memories", said Arizona state Sen.
Overnight Tuesday through Wednesday morning, firefighters were establishing a perimeter around Mayer with bulldozers carving fire breaks.
The fire has charred more than 28 square miles (73 square kilometers) while being fanned by winds ranging to 35 mph (56 kph) winds.
Officials say lightning sparked the Frye Fire earlier this month.
2012 was the third worst year for wildfires, with 9.2 million acres (37231.1 square km) burned, according to the National Interagency Fire Center. The steep, rugged terrain makes it hard for firefighters to reach.
