Did you know that there have been 488 wildfires this year alone and 476 of those were human caused? These are scary numbers, especially give how dry our state is. And right now, there are at least two wildfires burning. Crews are already at the scene of the Badger Fire near Sunset Point (#badgerfire), and the Slide Fire (#slidefire) north of Sedona. Evacuations are in progress for folks living near Oak Creek Canyon and there are reports that this fire may spread fast due to high winds.
It’s incredibly dry out there and we beg each and everyone of you to please be very careful this summer. Obey all fire restrictions and report any suspicious activities.
