The fire, first reported on Sunday, has already burned over 16,000 acres northeast of Flagstaff, and is forcing evacuations and threatening residents, animals, and property in communities nearby.

Representative Blackman provided House members an update today on the fire’s current condition and called upon members to pray for those who are affected by the fire, and for the protection of the brave firefighting response teams and volunteers working to bring it under control. 

Representative Blackman said he plans to tour the fire on Thursday.
