MARK BRODIE: Governor Jan Brewer has declared a state of emergency for Yavapai County, because of the Gladiator Fire. The county board of supervisors had asked for the declaration. It’ll free up $10,000 for recovery expenses and emergency response. Homeowners, though, will not be able to get any of the money to pay for damages from the fire to their houses.
