President Barack Obama called Gov. Jan Brewer Thursday to express his concern for residents affected by Arizona wildfires.
Later, Brewer’s office issued a statement saying the president pledged to provide all federal resources necessary to the state of Arizona in the battle to contain the wildfires raging throughout the state.
Brewer said she discussed with Obama concerns regarding delayed information from federal disaster officials about what’s happening in mountain communities.
The president told Brewer he will work with federal officials to help iron out any problems related to a lack or delay of communication.
The wildfire in the White Mountains has burned 525 square miles with zero containment.
