Mapping the daily spread of the Wallow fire

The Wallow wildfire is the largest in state history and the Arizona Republic newspaper has compiled a striking set of maps showing the day by day growth of the fire. The one at right is the last in the series, with each color showing the acreage burned on one day. Clicking through the set demonstrates how quickly the fire swept across the region in its early days. Kudos to the Republic for a pulling this together.
