Wildfires burn near Flagstaff, Ariz.

 

A massive wildfire has been raging near Flagstaff, Ariz. since the last week of April. Record heat, low humidity and high wind speeds have helped fuel the wildfire and spread faster. Firefighters are working hard to contain the fire. Most of the south western states are in a critical fire danger due to a historic drought that is taking place. A few counties near the wildfire have been evacuated for the safety of the people. The severity of the drought that has been taking place on the west coast of the United States is only continuing to get worse. The Colorado river supplies much of the drinking water to Arizona and is drying up more and more each year. The west coast of the United States will likely be facing another year of intense and active wildfires this summer.
