UPDATE: The Wallow Fire is now the largest wildfire to ravage the state, eclipsing the Rodeo-Chediski blaze of 2002. The Wallow Fire has burned more than more than 469,000 acres in Arizona and New Mexico.
Although the fire is only about 18% contained, according to officials, there is a silver lining. To date, only 31 homes have been lost to the fire. Rodeo-Chediski consumed 465 homes.
