An update on Tuesday's post.
The fire has tripled and still only 7% contained.
The winds were gusting 25 to 30 miles, so planes were grounded
I-10 between New Mexico and Tucson was closed several time because
of smoke and dust, plus many of the state highways in that area.
There are small towns communities, lots of ranches and BLM lands.
This fire is not "near" me, about an hour away but when I look south I can see
dust and smoke in the sky.
A few photos taken from the news, not the best but you can get the feeling of the fire.
The temps will be only about 85 with a drop in the wind so the planes can fly.
Fighting the fire from the sky and on the ground.
This fire was man made.
Here is a photo of a fire in Mesa (Phoenix) right now it is small but
give it a day with the winds and it could grow.
I hope it does not.
