it is a known fact that the government "hires" people to do things. There are many cases of riots and shootings being started over seas because american people were shooting off guns and rallying riots. What makes you think any different about these fires? The stupidest people seem to be government employed. No offense to you but you are calling me stupid and I pay you

This is so so sad- Sedona/flag is my other home. Thank you to all who are working so hard to save it!

The fire isn't getting worse, no spreading to the North, East or South. Some burning to the West. The firefighters are gaining ahold of it thanks to the humid air, less winds and cooler Temps. Get it right

As I am employed by the government and I see absolutely no disrespect whatsoever. We do is what is asked by the government regardless if we agree with them or not its our job. Fire by lightening strike is one thing but most of our fires are caused by humans so that means humans are getting more stupid don't tell me there is little we can do the problem is we have not done anything. Smokey the Bear died ages ago.

I'm sure that one or more liberal Democrats are responsible for setting the fire.

Give a little respect to the 19 men that died in Prescott. They were employed by the government.

This is only the beginning. Every year forest fires have continued to get worse. There is very little that anyone can do. The Rockies got pounded by snow this winter. Unfortunately, dead trees absorb 0 moisture. The Rockies too will burn this summer. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mountain_pine_beetle
