Scalding heat killed at least three people this weekend in Arizona and was stoking at least five major wildfires across the desert Southwest, authorities said Sunday.

.

Excessive heat warnings blanketed Southern California and Arizona, where temperatures soared into the triple digits Sunday and were expected to remain there until Monday, according to the National Weather Service. “The interior areas will remain dangerously hot,” the NWS said.

.

The heat will remain constant in the West and expand into the middle of the country by midweek, said Reynolds Wolf, a meteorologist for The Weather Channel.

.

“It’s like you take a salt shaker of madness and sprinkle it” over the western half of the country, Wolf said.

.

Three people were found dead in Arizona this weekend from separate heat-related emergencies, authorities said. The first, a 25-year-old man, died while hiking the Peralta Trail in Pinal County on Saturday, Sheriff Paul Babeu said.

.

Sunday, a 28-year-old woman who worked as a personal trainer died during a morning hike along the Desert Vista Trail in Maricopa County, Phoenix fire officials told NBC News. The heat overcame her so swiftly that she died despite having taken along plenty of water and being immediately treated by a doctor in her hiking group.

.

Later Sunday, two hikers, a man and a woman, hiking Finger Rock Trail in Pima County left the trail without taking along water and had to be rescued by helicopter, authorities said. The woman died laterSunday at a hospital, the Pima County Sheriff’s Department said Sunday night.

.

The crushing heat is expected to get even worse Monday, when highs in Phoenix could hit 120 degrees  the hottest in more than 20 years.

.

New Mexico, southern Nevada, Southern California and other parts of Arizona are expected to see temperatures as much as 20 degrees above average  up to 110 degrees, said Michael Palmer, The Weather Channel’s lead meteorologist.

.

Fire officials said the excessive heat would hamper efforts to quell five explosive wildfires that were forcing evacuations in three states.

.

In New Mexico, the Dog Head fire, burning about 30 miles south of Albuquerque, had already damaged 24 homes. The fire was only 9 percent contained Sunday, according to incident commander Rich Nieto.

.

The fire, which started Tuesday, tripled to 17,000 acres Saturday, forcing evacuations. But it hadn’t grown much by Sunday, partly because of rising humidity that came with the rising temperatures in the area, Nieto said.

.

Another fire burning in the state, near Cibola National Forest, had ballooned to more than 35,000 acres Sunday and was 30 percent contained.

.

“The weather forecast … calls for unseasonably warm air temperatures along with a drying trend which will continue to develop over the region,” fire officials said in an incident report. “This pattern will continue to increase fire behavior and smoke production.”

.

Heat was also feeding the Sherpa fire in Santa Barbara, California, according to Los Padres National Forest officials.
