Update on the Schultz Fire

We hear the tanker planes and helicopters flying overhead as they battle the fire. It is at 12,000 acres and counting. One of our citizens says it best below.

The following pictures are from Chuck LaRue and give you a sense for how this thing "blew up" on Sunday. Helen and I were driving back from Prescott while this was the scene.

The wind just grabbed it.

And fanned it hard.

And then it multiplied.

And all anyone could do was get out of the way.
