I can't even imagine the size of this fire. The one here is at 137,000 acres, and they said that it is the size of Chicago or Las Vegas. That one is 351,000 acres.
Cindy - how far away are you from the fire? Sorry, I don't know my AZ geography very well,
and they aren't showing state maps on TV.
It's good that Federal money is coming for all those people. Hopefully all these fires will be a wake up call to all the environmental groups who oppose forestry management. These forests are not in a "natural" condition. If left to their own devices, there is fire every so often to cull the forest. Unfortunately, the government has bowed to the radicals' wishes and not kept the forests in a healthy state by prescribed burns and culling of trees.
