A large wildfire in the valley south of the town of Parker is charring acres of river brush and sending a huge plume of smoke into the air that can be seen dozens of miles away.
The La Paz County Sheriff’s Department says the fire “may take a while to be contained” and is advising people to stay away from the smoke. Dispatch sent out a Health Advisory for people in the area. Smoke appeared to be blowing west toward Big River, CA just across the river (above).
