Wallow Fire: Day 15

First of all, sorry for not updating sooner; this post includes information from InciWeb and Channel 5 (KPHO).

Initial update on fire: it has now grown to 430,171 acres and is at 6% containment; the number of buildings destroyed is up to 67 (29 residences, 34 outbuildings, and 4 commercial properties), along with about 6 others damaged (5 residences and 1 outbuilding).  3,208 firefighters and other personnel from around the country are presently in the area fighting it.

The DC-10 that I mentioned in the last post made slurry drops today.

In addition, due to the high smoke and haze, air conditions have reached a point to be considered extremely hazardous in both Eagar and Springerville.
