He says that was not uncommon for Carlos, who would regularly offer food to others.
 
Even though he is gone, there is something Manuel will never forget about him.

                                                                                                                                                          

 “I like his laugh or his laughter,” he said.
 
There is a memorial set up near the Safeway for Carlos.

 
There will be vigil in that same area on Sunday night at 8 p.m. for anyone who wants to come out and remember Carlos.

    The Forest Service said Tuesday’s high winds, coupled with dry vegetation and low relative humidity – is a formula that can create massive wildfires. Like the Aspen Fire on Mt Lemmon that burned 84,000 acres in 2003.
