PLEASE DO NOT SET ANYTHING ON FIRE. I think that’s the main message here.

Forecasts are calling for much higher temperatures this week with a slight uptick in humidity. Fire season started a little late down south but it has become a very busy season around the state.

New fires have been starting closer to our area with multiple fires over the weekend sort of along a horizontal line from New River over toward the Tonto National Forest. Please be smart and safe with any work you need to do and please do not set anything on fire.
