Aftermath already?

The "Tucson Weekly":http://www.tucsonweekly.com/ is running a "cover story on the Aspen Fire":http://www.tucsonweekly.com/tw/current/feat.html; the story discusses some of the political controversy over fire management, some of the management history of the Catalinas, and prospects for rebuilding.

Today, the fire is about 35% contained, and at a little over 30,000 acres. Full containment won't really come until the monsoons, but firefighters report that most of their major fire lines are built, or well in progress.
