Obama, who is on a trip to Africa, also expressed his gratitude to the hundreds of first responders who continue to work around the clock to protect homes and businesses.

During the Monday call, the president reinforced his commitment to providing necessary federal support to Arizona and to local first responders fighting the fire.  The administration says it will continue to keep in constant contact with local officials and coordinate with federal agencies.
