With unhealthy air quality due to the Wallow Fire in eastern Arizona, the Red Cross Shelter remains open in Lakeside. Reports from county and state emergency management personnel indicate the air quality is steadily improving, though.

As the residents of Eagar, Greer, Springerville and Nutrioso make their way back home, Red Cross Disaster Assessment volunteers will begin evaluating homes that were damaged or destroyed by the wildfire. Upon completion of the initial assessment, the Red Cross will begin providing necessary assistance.

The Red Cross provides a "Picking Up The Pieces After a Disaster" page online for people who suffer through wildfire, home fires or other natural disasters. The information can be at www.arizonaredcross.org/recovery.

If you would like to make a donation to help victims of a local disaster like this one, call (602) 336-6660 or go to www.arizonaredcross.org.
