Daisy Fire

Post by LosDosSloFolks »

Just saw DC-10 tankers flying over our house heading towards New River. New fire in the National Forest...

I assume this was for that fire: [ youtube video ]
For me, sometimes it's just as much about the journey as the destination.

Yes. That same video is embedded in the link I posted. The videographer almost got covered in surfactant!

I think this might also be called the Central Fire. At least that’s what it’s being called on the Tonto National Forest Facebook page

Yes, different websites are calling it by different names. Daisy and Central Fire appear the most common.

@AZWanderingBear 's area is near a brush fire that flared up this afternoon (Aquila (AZ-A4S) - new, 50 acres - located in area of Tramonto, AZ). I saw it on my way home.

According to officials with the Department of Forestry and Fire Management, additional resources and aircraft are en route to battle the fire. Wind conditions are causing the fire to spread, according to officials with Daisy Mountain Fire and Medical.

Wade said fire came within 150 yards of his home.

From what I saw on the news, they fought this one fast and hard.

I was wondering about them! Glad it turned out ok!
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty & well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out & proclaiming, "Wow What a Ride!"

That's awfully close. I haven't talked to Wade for quite a while now.
