My brother is a Border Patrolman in AZ. He lives in Sierra Vista and sent a few pics of the wildfire. As of this morning there is a mandatory evac up to 4 miles south of his house and a prep to evac up to 2 miles south. He's previously worked as a Fireman (and EMT, and Sheriff's Deputy, and Mountain Rescue, and Backwoods Park Ranger) so he should know how to take care of himself!

WOW!

Must be one hell of a helpless feeling when those things come bearing in on one's house.

It's just terrible stuff right now in the Southwest. New Mexico is burning up as well, (though not nearly on the same scale) We desperately need rain.

Those are horrific looking pictures. It reminds me of some scenes in Apocolypse Now.
