Out of control: Arizona wildfire now the worst in state’s history as blaze spreads to New Mexico
The Wallow Fire has burned more than 600 square miles, 408,887 acres, and is now six per cent contained.
At least 10,000 people have been displaced and more than 30 homes have been destroyed so far. Authorities said full containment is nowhere in sight, and power lines that supply much of West Texas and Southern New Mexico with electricity are also in jeopardy.
Yesterday an absence of strong winds allowed firefighters to set preventive burns and cut fire breaks. The winds, however, are expected to pick up and pose more challenges to fire fighting crews.
Last night the massive fire did cross the border into western New Mexico.
More than 5,000 residences are threatened by the massive fire, officials said.
Arizona cut $250,000 from the 2011 fire budget under the assumption that it would be a ‘quiet’ year for fires. This is now the third wild fire in Arizona this year.
Next year the budget calls for $300,000 in cuts from the department.
Full evacuations were still in place for Eagar, Springerville, Sunrise, Greer, Blue River, Alpine, Nutrioso and many subdivisions. Officials also say 24 outbuildings in Greer were destroyed along with one vehicle.
On Thursday, more than 3,000 firefighters got a break from nature when high winds driving the flames lost strength.
Father has started numerous fires with Her lightning bolts and devastation is ever increasing in the tinderbox areas that have suffered from lack of rain. It is indeed becoming hell on earth, but is only a taste of what is to come. Soon, the false religious empire will come under fire as people curse Father as a vindictive or nonexistent God.
Babylon the Great will recognize that they are about to take a hard fall. There will never be a day on the international news cast that speaks of anything good happening on this planet to do with weather or other natural phenomena such as earthquakes and volcanic activity. Soon, they will question what is causing so much revolt in nature, but some of Dawn Lucifer’s human agents will try to sooth the public awareness by saying it is the earth going through a recycling stage that will eventually even itself out. For many, they will take no notice of the truth of what is about to befall them any more than they did in Noah’s pre-flood era, but all will be infuriated as the world they once knew is no longer hospitable.
Psalm 147:17 “He throws His hailstones like crumbs. Who can withstand His cold?”
Who can withstand anything Father decides to throw evil mankind’s way? No one.
