A wildfire burns through the trees and underbrush on a hot, humid day over the summer. Local and state agencies work together fighting the blaze. While firefighters battle the flames on the ground, state agencies work behind the scenes to support the first responders.

Arizona is known for sunny days, cacti, and monsoon storms in the searing summer months. Most people don’t realize that serious winter weather affects parts of the Grand Canyon state as well. It can be a danger to those unprepared for it.
