Navajo Nation Schools Evacuated

Here, from the Navajo Post.

As the fire continues to tear through the Navajo Nation, officials have now declared a state of emergency for the largest Native American tribe in north America with over 2,000 acres burning- people scramble to save their homes and livestock.

The Central Consolidated school district issued a press release and said they have begun evacuating the Newcomb and Naschitti schools and are encouraging parents to pick up their children at the local high school. According to fire officials the fire appears to have been started by a ‘human’ and said they will continue to investigate the cause of the fire.
