In Oracle, Az. scrub and undergrowth have been thinned from the trees along the West America Ave. entrance to town in an effort to keep this evacuation route open during fire season. The town is working with residents, particularly on the borders of town and main traffic areas, to mitigate danger during fire season. Photo taken Tuesday, February 18, 2014.
