From local evacuated to Eager, 20 min. ago: 2.5 miles from Greer, spot fires shooting out 3 miles from any direction of this inferno. Don't get any closer than this! Feels like it's the bottom of the 12th inning, 2 outs, bases loaded, game 7.....S. Fork just bailed out and Tom Pifer said spot fires have started raining out of the sky at S. Eagar. The war for Eagar is on...I'm confident, Hotshots from other states just keep piling in. May Greer live forever.
June 8 at 7:08am · * o Kay Zahn A little dramatic, but you can "hear" what they are up against. The Fire Service said they were going to do "back burns" in that area. Let's hope that's them !!! June 8 at 7:09am · o Kay Zahn The comment above came 20 minutes ago . . the friend was evacuated Monday ;) June 8 at 7:09am · o Pamela Train Krasta ughhh this is just so horrible.... June 8 at 7:24am · o Kay Zahn There are Hotshots standing by all around Greer and Eager . . and the winds seem much calmer, but as we know this fire makes it's own weather. If you look at the maps you can see just how effective they were at saving Alpine, Nutrioso and surrounding areas. These folks are doing there job and doing it well ! June 8 at 7:28am · o Katy Holditch What about all the cattle, how are they rounding them up and getting them out of there? June 8 at 7:32am · o Kay Zahn My guess is that they are just turning them out . . I know they did that with 50 head of horses in Alpine and over 40 came back. Horses will run to safety however, cattle will stand there and turn into dinner. June 8 at 7:33am · o Katy Holditch Steak on the hoof. June 8 at 7:52am ·
#Kay Zahn This article says they may start cutting electricity in the affected areas. . . NO . . my web cams . . . I need them . . . . but if they go, you'll know why ! www.azcentral.com Arizona fires: No end in sight as Wallow continues to grow, The mammoth Wallow Fire continued its relentless advance Tuesday, forcing the evacuation of a major part of Eagar amid rolling power outages and reports of gasoline shortages.#Gayla Bird This was just posted on ..Big Lake Arizona UPDATE UPDATE!!!!!!! As of 8:30AM we have learned that all structures are intact. They did have a few hot spots, but those hard working fire fighters have been working hard to keep the Big Lake recreation area mostly untouched. They have now set up a base camp at Big Lake and Crescent Lake. This is great news. Thank you all for your kind words and prayers. :-) Praise the Lord!
