Fires, and More Fires
Even with all the devastation, people still continue to start camp fires and throw cigarette butts out their vehicles while driving. Can't believe they could be so thoughtless and selfish.. Looters are robbing homes where people have had to evacuate, but where the fires have not yet ravaged the home and property. What a world we live in.
My thoughts and prayers go out to those who have had to evacuate and leave their homes and belongings! I'm proud of our city and the way everyone has come together with such caring hearts, helping evacuees with accommodations, food and care, not only for them, but for their animals. It's amazing! I haven't heard of anyone being killed because of the fires, nor of any motor vehicle accidents as in previous years, so we're all very fortunate. This time every thing has been managed and organized very well. We have awesome firefighters, and we're thankful for them as well as for the pilots, equipment operators, all those behind the scenes.. They're doing a fantastic job.We even have firefighters who flew in from Mexico and Australia today to help in our battle! How awesome is that!
