Oak Creek's Slide Fire is one for the books

Residents can go home; but no looky-loos

The sky was pretty clear over West Sedona Wednesday afternoon, when a smaller crowd of Oak Creek residents, firefighters and interested neighbors gathered at Red Rock High auditorium for what's likely to be the last neighborhood meeting. One week after the Slide Fire was touched off, raced north through Oak Creek Canyon and scared everyone to death, many seemed to know the worst is over and it is time to go home.
