This fire is 100 miles away but we can see the smoke from here!

Arrow On the news yesterday

The burnt area as of 7:30pm last night was the equivalent of area from Baseline up to Bell Rd, 87th Ave to Scottsdale Rd. That's a huge portion of Metro Phoenix!

Have you seen the aftermath left behind the fire, looks like a picture of ther moon. Is it just me- or is that forest service guy that the media is all over beginning to get a little bit crabby. I bet he is tired of being asked the same questions, and not having answers to all of them. I wish that I could be in Showlow to see this fire come through, what a site that would be. You could sell your pictures to Arizona Highways for cash$$.

Does make one sick when they think about it or see it.
People loosing their homes, & a maze of itmes in them are really suffering.
Have never worked around people in such a situation, but have when most parts of some cities were flooding, including my own home.

Know the feeling. Florida burns on a regular basis also. A year or two ago a big burn came within a mile of my house. The interstate was closed because the fencing had burned and cattle were roaming the freeway!

Here in Georgia we don't see too many fires, just tornadoes, not quite the same but interesting anyway. It is hotter than hades lately, but for this time of year consistant heat is nice. If the temperature plummets rapidly start looking to take cover because a tornado could be on the way and at night you can't see the wretched things before they hit. Be careful in Arizona we don't want to lose anybody to some nasty, wretched fire.

They compare the size of the burned area as the size of 17 Manhattan's. The borough in NYC, not the drink.
