The Gladiator Fire in the Bradshaw Mountains of the Prescott National Forest in Arizona has burned more than 16,000 acres since it began on May 13. Started when a home caught fire on Gladiator Road near Crown King, AZ, the wildfire quickly advanced up the mountain. Referred to as the little town that would not burn, this is the second wildfire Crown King has survived; the first was the Lane 2 Fire in June/July of 2008. The Landsat 7 images above show the area consumed by the Gladiator Fire.
