I’d just like to ask everyone to keep the people of several mountain communities in AZ in their thoughts and prayers.
There are several fires burning, and one fire (the Wallow Fire) in particular has caused the mandatory evacuations of multiple towns (including the homes of my relatives). Officials are saying it could be the most devastating wildfire in AZ history as drought conditions are the worst they’ve been for almost 50 years, and high winds aren’t helping.
The fire grew exponentially from 6k on Wednesday to 106k this morning. It is threatening to wipe out entire towns as well as the most pristine forest in the state. It is headed NE, directly for hundreds of homes. Very scary.
I am so sad for the people, the animals, and the forest. Hundreds of lives may be ruined here (and billions of $ spent) because of one idiot who didn’t put out a campfire.
Please pray AZ and for the firefighters battling this monster.
