Quality of life issues
The wildfire is totally out of control (no containment as of yet.) Smoke has drifted as far as Iowa - and the fire is in its infancy. From my past experience in both Flagstaff Arizona and Northwestern Montana during summer fires - the sun disappears although the haze of smoke allows daylight . The smell of smoke is gagging. Every day is the same - go to bed with it and wake up with it.
When Monsoon Season comes (july august) the rain help suppress the fire while the Lightening starts more fires daily.
Many of Arizona fires continue until they burn out - many normal containment methods do not work well in a desert.
It is very probable Arizona's social and political issues will be solved if this fire is not contained. Sara Palin moving to Arizona - the Indians would say, is a bad omen.
