Smoke and haze visible in the Colorado Springs area Monday could be from central Arizona fire, said the National Weather Service in Pueblo.

The Tinder fire - which started Friday in Arizona's Coconino National Forest - grew to about 8,600 acres over the weekend. The cause is unknown at this time, said Joel Barnett, a spokesman for the incident management team fighting the fire.

The smoke might have traveled from central Arizona on strong southwesterly winds Monday.

"The winds are certainly in the right direction to get some smoke in our area," said Pamela Evenson, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Pueblo.
