SIERRA VISTA, AZ (Tucson News Now) - A man is under investigation and possibly facing charges in connection with a weekend brush fire that burned 25 acres and several cars in a salvage yard. Cochise County Sheriff's investigators say it started with a skunk set on fire.

Several fire departments responded including the Whetstone Fire Department, Fry Fire Department, Huachuca City Fire Department, State Land, Douglas Hot Shots and 2 Slurry Planes from the Bureau of Land Management.
