Arizona Wildfires: The people who are saving our forest.
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
With three separate wildfires growing in Arizona its easy to see and think of the awful devastation that is burning, right now, in our states unique national forests. But that's not the only story going on in our forests.
As I headed up to the Sunflower wildfire, just south of Payson, I could not help but notice all the fire personnel involved in the fight to save our forests. I met some really incredibly nice people that are working hard to save the land that we all grew up in camping and hiking. There are over 1,500 individuals relentlessly working in the wildfires to save our state. Here are a few photos of the fire personnel working hard at the Sunflower wildfire.
