    Fire on the Mountain: Crown King, Arizona


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     azchila shot this video on the afternoon of May 13 of plumes of wildfire smoke rising on the horizon near Crown King, Arizona. 'The fire has damaged at least 300 acres the last I heard, and has also destroyed some structures. There were voluntary evacuations, the fire has spread but away from the town of Crown King itself and has now hit the forest land,' she said. 'Crown King and the surrounding area is known for it's peaceful and beautiful landscape, it's so disheartening to look out my window and see the destruction firsthand.'
