    Ok. That’s one fire explained. What’s burning in town? I just got home about 15 minutes ago and it was burning bad. Buckskin fire was heading into town with lights, sirens, 2 trucks, and the fire chief.

  24. Karina Deann Cesena

    I just moved out of that house next door to the one that burnt 👇 in September. It’s scary up there.

  25. Karina Deann Cesena

    Beth Dalton look what house burnt down. Right next door to us. Wow

  26. La Paz laid off their Code Inspector… Dumb move La Paz supervisors! Not only did the Code Inspector bring in much needed revenue for the county but needless fires would be prevented.

  27. Shirley, it is North of Parker. The boundary for the town of Parker is only about 1 square mile.

  28. Prayers to Don and Dana Richardson that all is well with you. Too close for comfort. Uncle Frank

    Bean Pot appears to be prone to structure fires.
