    Hey Desert Ram, This was the post I was looking for to talk about the Payson Wildfire.... I thought I saw this before.
    I just don't have much time... and YES I did a search...:)
     

  3. Actually the one by Christopher Creek is over 1000 acres. It is called the Promentory Fire.

    I just checked the Weather forecast for Payson and Heber. The forecast in both these locations calls for isolated and scattered T-storms, highs between 75-85 degrees, chance of precip's at 30% and winds from the south/southwest between 12-13 mph. That's a perfect recipe to send the fire racing across the Rim and northeastward into the public used forests.

    A fluke rainstorm would sure help, but with a 30% chance of rain and predicted thunderstorms looming, that could mean lightning-caused fires could erupt. Bummer.

    Thanks , AzSlim. I just didn't know what it was called and couldn't spell Promentory. :)

    Thanks Dan I try to sneak on at work to your updates.
