According to charts, in 2002 there were fires in the middle section of AZ, not in the southern section where we live John Juarez, so in spite of mountains all around us, the vegetation is different as opposed to forests of trees.  The chance of electrical storms is with us every Monsoon Season, though we do not see fires yearly, and depending on where in the mountain ranges, dwellings are not prevalent.  When we lived in CA, that was a different story, and we lived there for 30 years.

If Sierra Club, PETA, and Nancy Polisi could be muzzled, the risk of a natural disaster would go way down. Just ask the folks in the smokey environments of western USA. Sierra Club now has their cross hairs on Oregon. That won't end well....for Oregonians.

We're in the natural path every hurricane season, compound that with the most lightning strikes, torrential rains and flooding, algae blooms,  sinkholes, etc. therefore our likelihood is somewhere near 99% although when is another question.
