Wildfire


It`s that time of year. There are five fires burning in Arizona at this moment. The largest are human caused. One thousand firefighters at the largest fire, many more trying to control other fires, risking their lives to save homes, people and wildlife from a preventable, thoughtless or perhaps criminal act. Air tankers, helicopters, their crews, all the fearless men and women that walk into hell working long hours with little sleep, thank you. I know first hand how difficult this is.

Bless you all,

  2. The wildfires must be scary. I cant understand people causing such mischief and creating huge problems for the residents and the firefighters. I hope they are caught.

  11. I've been hearing so much about this terrible fire on the news! I hope it is contained soon, and that there will be no loss of life. Dry conditions and careless humans is a bad combination.
