Rodeo-Chediski Fire

Mogollon Rim

The largest fire in Arizona history started in the summer of 2002 when two fires converged during record drought conditions in the state. One fire was started by a man who wanted to find work as a fire fighter. The second fire was started by a woman who was lost and started a signal fire. More than 450,000 acres burned and over 200 homes were destoyed. Conservatives blamed environmentalists for the destructive force of the fire.
