I'm watching the updates on the forest fire here and its turned into the biggest fire most people have ever seen. It now covers 458 square miles. Thats and area over 3 1/2 times the size of Tucson. They have evacuated 25,000 people and it looks like the entire town of Show Low may go up in flames. I have worked and spent a lot of time in those areas and I think its the prettiest country in the whole state. It certainly has the best trout fishing. Its still completely out of control and as of this time it has burned at least 115 homes. Unfortunately there will be many more lost and there is no rain anywhere in sight. The front of the fire is about three miles wide with flames 200 feet high approaching the town. Thats gotta be a scary sight for homeowners.President Bush is supposed to sign papers tomorrow declaring it a federal disaster area.
