Gov. Jan Brewer is in eastern Arizona for a second visit to the area of the Wallow fire.
Brewer’s office says the visit started with an aerial tour of the fire’s west side. The visit also includes several stops in Lakeside. Those include a briefing by a firefighting manager, a meeting with evacuees and an availability with news media.
Spokeswoman Tasya (tasha) Peterson says Brewer wants to assure the evacuees that she and the state are doing everything they can to meet the evacuees’ needs and to try to stop the fire.
Brewer also visited the fire area on Saturday.
Thousands of people have been forced from their homes by the fire that has burned hundreds of thousands of acres.
