Sedona Fires Growing in Size near Slide Rock

Our hearts and prayers go out to the residents and brave firefighters who are dealing with the fires in Sedona.

(From AZ News)
Hundreds of firefighters poured into Arizona on Wednesday to battle a wind-whipped wildfire burning in a rugged canyon between Sedona and Flagstaff, sending up choking plumes of smoke and scuttling Memorial Day weekend travel plans in the popular camping and hiking area.

Authorities warned about 3,200 residents in two communities that they need to be ready to evacuate if the fire makes another advance. The blaze earlier Wednesday doubled in size to 1 1/3 square miles and could grow by nightfall to 2,000 acres, or about 3 square miles.
