Tucson, Arizona (CNN) -- As some eastern Arizona residents began heading home Saturday after a massive wildfire, the attention turned to another blaze on the Mexican border that has burned more than 20,000 acres.

Gordon Van Vleet, a spokesman for the Joint Information Center, said that no cause has been determined for the so-called Monument fire, which has spread across the Huachuca Mountains.

"The cause of the fire is still under investigation," said Van Vleet, adding that authorities likely won't state a cause until the blaze is more under control.

But in a press conference, Sen. John McCain blamed illegal immigrants for starting unspecified fires in that area.

"There is substantial evidence that some of these fires have been caused by people who have crossed our border illegally," McCain said. "The answer to that part of the problem is to get a secure border."

The Republican senator said that illegal immigrants set such fires either to send signals, keep warm or distract law enforcement agents. But he did not specify which fires allegedly had been started by illegal immigrants, nor identify his sources or provide details of the "substantial" evidence he cited.

...okay, the fires MAY have been started by illegal immigrants...but they may not have been. A man who did NOT want to spread hatred and fear would have kept his mouth least until he had some proof....but this "rush to hatred" shows him, and his white brethren, for just what they are. And there's no need even to spell it out, we know them so well.
