Ducey calls special session to address wildfires, aftermath

Saying the current fires are just the beginning of problems, Gov. Doug Ducey on June 10 called for a special legislative session to begin next week.

“It’s clear that we still have a lot more to do,” the governor said after taking a helicopter tour over the fires – and charred remains – of the Telegraph and Mescal fires.

“The response won’t end when the fires are put out,” he continued. “When this year’s monsoon rains come, these burned areas are prone to landslides, mudslides and flooding, which pose another threat to our communities.”

Ducey’s move comes one day after he declared a state of emergency. That frees up $200,000 for each blaze using resources under his control.
