Wallow Fire: Day 11, part 1

Fox News has a report that the Wallow Fire in Northern Arizona has now burned “486 square miles” (according to the report) since “an unattended campfire…sparked the blaze [at] about 1:30p.m. May 29 [2011].”  Now the fire continues to spread and as of Tuesday, “it became the second-largest fire in Arizona history,” as crews continue to try to control it, without any success so far.  Several “areas south of state Route 260 and east of Greer” have been evacuated so far, with probably more to come.

I just hope that this fire is taken care of and no one loses any more homes than the 10 buildings that have been damaged so far.

  2. Yep, so far. From what my mom was telling me, the fire has so far just stayed in the actual forest area, but it’s like moving about 8 miles a day so we’ll never know until this thing is actually done.
