So very sad. A friend of mine is dating a firefighter in PHX that was working with those guys last week on a fire. He was friends with many of them

It's that time of year for lightening around here. It is already so dry here and over east. Going to be a fun warm weathered summer but the forests are gonna pay for it.

Yeah, you folks have had record heat down there. Do you have fire problems West of the Cascades?

Most of them are lightning. Everything is soooo dry out there. It is our monsoon season so you sometimes have afternoon thunderstorms on a regular basis. The one real natural disaster AZ has to worry about is wildfires.


There are so many fire restrictions because it's been so dry.... seems like now anytime we go camping in the summer campfires are banned.

The winds acting on those wildfires is incredible. The fire can leapfrog in the air and get behind them trapping them in an instant

How long until Obama uses this terrible tragedy and the sacrifice of these brave firefighters to promote his global warming agenda?

19 American heroes just died and the first thing you think about is Obama?

Prayers go out to the families of those brave men

I was in Phoenix on Friday and it was 118 degrees, so I guess the entire area is a tinderbox.
