#Gayla Bird The co owner of Molly butler's is saying buildings are on fire June 8 at 6:40pm · o Kristi Spillman That is VERY possible at this time. Let's just stay positive : )....: ( June 8 at 6:42pm · o Kay Zahn AJ's note was sobering June 8 at 6:42pm · o Ellen Weinel Hickey That was posted early this afternoon. Google earth was not showing fire in area at that time?? June 8 at 6:50pm · o Jennifer Stewart Google earth shows an image of our cabin in Greer from 3 years ago... June 8 at 7:34pm · o Ellen Weinel Hickey Google Earth has a fire indicator...shows temperature of area and fire. updated every 30 min? No sure how accurate? June 8 at 7:36pm · o Gayla Bird here's a link my sister in law found that shows the most updated fire boundaries that we could find, scroll down about half way through page...www.wilfiretoday.com June 8 at 7:37pm · o Dawn Bailey Sherman Looking at that photo...looks like it's still outside of Greer. But there nonetheless... June 8 at 7:49pm · o Kay Zahn Mark Wade just called me to confirm that they have NOT given up on Greer. Firefighers are still there and that's all he would confirm. June 8 at 7:51pm · o Tami Collup Scheinman Jennifer, you have to open google earth, then go to inciweb and open their fire info link. All it gives you are the latest pinpoints of reported hot spots -not up to date satellite. With all this technology, you'd think they could, right?? June 8 at 7:56pm · * # Richard L. Smith My grandparents visited Greer in the 1920's - My parents honeymooned there in 1948 - We started coming up regularly in 1960, stayed at Wiltbanks every summer until we built our own place in Crosby Acres in 1983. Heartbreaking! A cabin can be replaced, but it will be a long time before the most beautiful place on earth recovers.... June 8 at 6:57pm · Kay Zahn, Kristi Spillman and 2 others like this. * o Tracy McCormick Ours is in Crosby Acres, too. My dad started building in the late 70s. Yes, a cabin can be replaced. Thank goodness for insurance. My fear is that nobody will want to rebuild on charred land, no trees, no forest. Greer would be gone and I don't think it would come back. :( June 8 at 7:08pm · o Tami Collup Scheinman My parents are also in Crosby Acres. My Grandparents, the Tribers, bought the little one-room cabin on the corner and expanded it as we spent our summers there, riding horses in the meadow across from Molly Butler's, going there for the bes...t ribs I've had to this day, hiking all over Hall Creek and up the cinder mountain, walking all over Eager (by myself because it was SO safe!) After Grandpadaddy (John Triber) died, my parents, Chuck Clifford C. Collup and Gretchen moved there to rebuild it to their full-time home and have planted all four feet firmly in the community. My sister and I look forward to possibly retiring there one day. We lost my Grandpalady (Billye Jean Triber) less than a year ago, now Mom may be in danger of losing their home. I have such a knot in my stomach, I can't even tell you! (Mom, Dad, dogs, and RV are currently in Mesa, BTW, and ravenous for any info I can report off the web.)See More June 8 at 7:51pm ·

There are firefighters there, and they have NOT GIVEN UP ON GREER. June 8 at 7:50pm · Dawn Bailey Sherman and 18 others like this. * o Beth Clements Dales Thank you, Kay. A glimmer of hope! June 8 at 7:51pm · o Amy Duskey Thank You!!! We are not giving up on them and Greer!!! Be safe!!!! June 8 at 7:51pm · o Kay Zahn They are conducting back burns and working spot fires. He can't confirm exactly where, but they would NEVER GIVE UP GREER June 8 at 7:52pm · o Melanie Whitlock so kay greer is on fire or not June 8 at 7:52pm · o Jo Ellen Dudley Say a prayer to keep the brave fire fighters safe while they fight to save the most beautiful place........ June 8 at 7:53pm · o Dawn Bailey Sherman We aren't giving up either! I LOVE GREER AZ! June 8 at 7:54pm · o Melanie Whitlock i would rather have safe firefighters June 8 at 7:54pm · o Kay Zahn Melanie, I hear what you hear, and it sounds like it is, but that they are still fighting it. Earlier it seemed like they had given it up to an inferno . . but it didn't seem clear. . . . Mark would ONLY confirm for me that they have not retreated and left Greer to burn. June 8 at 7:57pm · o Jeremy Graham But are they in the south end or only up at Butterfly? June 8 at 7:58pm · o James David Porter Melanie, the best information we have now is that no fires have been detected in Greer as of yet, according to the satellite fire detection system called MODIS. Fire was rapidly advancing from the south up the east fork, as well as encroach...ing from the north near Heaven Scent Cabins, all afternoon. The fire was threatening to crest the entire eastern ridge, really. It has since slowed down considerably. Greer is not out of the woods yet, but for right now it is not burning.See More June 8 at 7:58pm · o Melanie Whitlock one way in one way out hope the firefighters are all ok June 8 at 7:59pm · o Kay Zahn I heard (unconfirmed and NOT from Mark) that there have been fires near Heaven Scent (which is on wonderland road, past butterfly lodge) so maybe? they retreated there to work that end . . . . I'm not sure, but the reports that the village was "engulfed" and they retreated to let it burn . . . are UNTRUE. June 8 at 7:59pm · o Kathryn McKenna Wade Thank you so much Kay for the hope... June 8 at 8:00pm · o Kay Zahn He confirmed nothing else about where, what or who. June 8 at 8:00pm · o Cyndee Haddock I hope that the FF's can find a little magic there and save that beautiful little town! God bless them, and Greer. June 8 at 8:00pm · o Kay Zahn James David Porter I can't wait for tomorrows satellite images. . . don't they do them at night? and then during the day was see them pointing out the changes . . . June 8 at 8:02pm ·#Rob Wasieko The Google Earth fire detection and intensity sensors are showing low temp fire 1/3 mi E of the Tin Star, and 1/2 mi S of the Red Setter Inn. higher intensity fire E and S of the fire lines. not detecting fire E of the main road yet. perhaps if there are FF's on site, if the winds die as expected, the cool air settles in and the meadown and lakes do thier jobs, the damage will be contained to the East side of the town.

#Kay Zahn screen shot off web cam looking just east of Sunrise it’s getting a little dark so some stuff is hard to make out. June 8 at 8:09pm · o Rob Barker where is that cam located in Greer? June 8 at 8:10pm · o Kay Zahn It's on a hilltop where the Cell towers are???? I'm asking for more into. But it has been confirmed that the Cell Site at the Community Center still has AC Power. He'd have lost it 5hours after power outage if that were the case. So thi...s morning we must have all lost our web cams and phone lines to a phone switch outage. But if we have power that means things like pumps from wells and sprinklers systems will work (mine is on)See More Rob Barker what time was this at? June 8 at 8:18pm · o Kay Zahn I'm guessing by the daylight.. 6:30 ish June 8 at 8:19pm · o Rob Barker a little bit of hope!!!!!! June 8 at 8:20pm · 1 personNicki Ann Clarke Flores likes this. o Jen Cruz Thanks so much for the updates. Does anyone have a confirmation from an official that structures were lost in Greer? I know about the letter from the owner of MB. That seems official, but I'm holding out hope... June 8 at 8:28pm · o Grace Alvarez this is the tower east of sunrise you know when you pass it on the highway kinda far from Greer but nonetheless somewhat helpful, I think. thank you. June 8 at 8:29pm · o Kay Zahn I'm not sure AJ had official info. Mark would NOT confirm for me so I'm worried that maybe something has been lost . . . I'll let you know here when I know. June 8 at 8:30pm · o Grace Alvarez look at the map attached movement of flames has been north of Greer seems like the fire has a natural barrier with the creeks and small lakes going down the canyon where South Fork Ranch is located. I pray Greer is just smoke engulfed and not flames. June 8 at 8:31pm · 1 person Nicki Ann Clarke Flores likes this.
