Real Estate Agent with REALTY EXECUTIVES TUCSON ELITE DRE# SA113961000


Pretty good news overall.

RE the Wallow fire...The Wallow Fire burning in Eastern Arizona is now 58 percent contained by a crew of 3,389. Though the fire is now at 529,825 acres, only one of the fire's three "zones" is actively burning outside the perimeter. The other two zones are creeping and smoldering through unburned interior islands, according to incident officials.


RE the Horseshoe2 fire… amazing news on this fire. The Horseshoe 2 Fire is 95 percent contained as firefighters are on track to have the Horseshoe 2 Fire contained by today, the date originally estimated for containment of the 222,954-acre blaze burning near Portal, AZ.

RE The Monument fire…the Monument fire is now 59% contained outside SIERRA VISTA, AZ ,according to the Incident Management Team. It has burned 28,236 acres and damaged or destroyed 57 homes, 42 outbuildings, 5 vehicles and 6 buses. The buses were parked at the time, not moving, and not in the process of escaping the fire!

Now if we can just keep drunks and fireworks separated until it starts to rain…ah well.

I didn't realize that the size of the crews that fight fire were so large. Hope things work out for Arizona soon Jon.

Jon-I hope this isnt' the calm before the storm, 4th of July? What a great job all firefighters are doing, I can't imagine what it's like working in that intense heat. Best.

Jon,  I also hope the progress continues and they get all the fires extinguished soon.  There are an awful lot of people working very hard.  My thoughts and prayers are with you all in Arizona.  Thank you for the update.

I hope you get a break in the weather and the rain begins to fall.

I remember your last post. We were talking about the fires in AZ and I mentioned we needed the rain pretty badly too. Not long afterward, the thunder and lightening put on a show. Then came the hail and the rafters started swaying while the wind was blowing so hard I thought my house was going to blow away. The hail was pounding down so fast and furious, lightening came flashing in every window that I had to take cover in my bathtub and I was pretty scared! It made me realize that without a basement or a storm shelter, I could be buried in my house and no one would ever find me! The weatherman reported 75 - 80 mph winds. The next morning by 9:30 a.m. I still had two big piles of hail in my yard.

Other parts of TX are still having wild fires.

Stay safe over there. I'll be thinking of you!

Jon - I hate to see that fire has taken so much property in your state - I know you need the rain as do we.  It's hard for famers and ranchers here in OK and I know Texas feels it too.  I hate to think that summer is only beginning.  We need to pray for rain to relieve us all.  Kelli
