Pipeline Fire burns north of Flagstaff

Wildfire season in Arizona started early and is prone to be intense.

At a information convention in March, Gov. Doug Ducey stated Arizona’s wildfire season may very well be much more catastrophic in 2022.

“I’m reluctant to call it wildfire season anymore because as our firefighters and fire officials know, Arizona faces the risk of wildfires year-round,” Ducey stated.

In the primary three months of 2022, roughly 90 fires have been reported with 627 acres burned. The state’s wildfire season sometimes begins in May.
