About 20 locals are fighting a massive fire in Arizona today. The Wallow Fire is being called one of the worst wildfires in Arizona history. It's already scorched more than 200,000 acres since it began last Sunday and continues to grow. Keith Rockow works in operations at Pat-Rick, a Redmond company that sends out contract firefighters when needed; and working on fires like this can give some much-needed cash to people who may be unemployed right now. "Of course it helps tremendously with the local economy. Young kids 19 to 24, or 25 to 30, trying to make ends meet to keep food on the table or their lights on. Put people to work they pump that money back into the economy."   He describes Pat-Rick as a national resource that provides initial attack crews on fires. He says they got the call Friday afternoon and the government requested them to be ready to go by 5 o'clock Saturday morning. They left Redmond Saturday morning on a chartered aircraft bound for Phoenix, Arizona.
