A Little To Close For Comfort...

Started as 2 acres, now one hour later 100 acres.

This fire is quickly growing out of control. They are evacuating the same town that they had to evacuate on Thursday morning. We need all the prayers we can get. The wind is blowing in favor of our home, but their are many homes in the path of this fire.

They are having a hard time evacuating due to the traffic backing up on our narrow canyon roads. I am currently listening to the police scanner on the computer. People are out hiking and camping in the backwoods. Their cars still parked where they left them. The police are desperately trying to find them. Cell service is practically non-existent out here.

People are bringing horse trailers in to help evacuate the animals that free range. Most animals are not fenced in, unless they are pets. I see a big water dropping plane coming in and out of the fire or at least I think that's what it is.

I heard on the scanner that campers shooting at some type of explosive stuff started this fire. At what point did these people loose their common sense or did they ever have any to begin with. There are big signs all over about fire bans. We have even stopped grilling our food on our charcoal grill due to the fire danger.

Please pray for all of our safety. Please pray for those involved in putting the fire out. This fire season has proven to be deadly this year. Please pray for those in the path of this fire. May God have His mighty hand of protection over us all.
