Fleas in northern Arizona test positive for plague:

Quote
FLAGSTAFF, AZ - Public health officials say that fleas collected in northern Arizona have tested positive for plague.

In a Thursday release, officials said fleas located in the Doney Park area tested positive for the disease. Last week, fleas collected in the Red Lake area, also tested positive.

The Coconino County Public Health Services District (CCPHSD) is reportedly notifying residents, and the burrows located on private property will be treated. Officials will closely be monitoring the area to determine if further action is necessary.

I was under the impression that Arizona doesn't have fleas.  Too dry.
