Western Wildfires

From left Sierra Vista residents, Krista Hopper, Jessica Hopper, 10, Tyler Hopper , 3, and Lee Hopper wait to hear from Gov. Jan Brewer at one of the evacuation centers for people displaced by the Monument Fire at Apache Middle School, Friday, June 17, 2011 in Sierra Vista, Ariz. In southern Arizona, the wind also helped fan the flames of two wildfires that had charred nearly 225,000 acres. One of the fires near Sierra Vista continued to push down a canyon Friday afternoon, forcing more residents from their homes and putting others on notice that they might have to leave.
