Senator Kyl’s Home in Arizona Wildfire’s Path

ABC News' Sunlen Miller (@sunlenmiller) reports:

Sen. Jon Kyl, R-AZ., may have been in the debt ceiling talks today for nearly two hours today, but told reporters afterward that he’s got other things on his mind right now.  Namely: his family’s summer home in Greer, Arizona currently in the Arizona wildfire’s path.

“I’m trying to find out whether or not my summer home up in the Arizona mountains is still there after the fire went through last night,” Kyl told reporters off-camera in the hallway, “I’m just getting a little report from a totally informal source, they think it is, I really don’t know.  And that’s really on my mind right now.”

A concerned looking Senator Kyl was fielding cell phone calls, getting updates on his home, in the Senate hallway after emerging from the closed-door debt ceiling talks.

The Kyl family spends their summers in their Greer cabin. On Saturday Kyl and his wife were told to voluntarily evacuate as the fire moved closer to their community.

The fire has been burning since May 29th.
