That is gut wrenching! I hope your place is spared any damage and you are able to return to your home!

Curtis,

If there is anything I can do to help let me know. I know I am a long ways from you, just let me know.

Stay safe down there Justin! Have a few friends who are just west of the fire. It was putting out a ton of smoke last night.

Damn Curtis hope all turns out ok. I am just an hour or 2 north of you and my father in law has plenty of room for your horses if you need.

Keep up the good work Justin - unfortunately it was only a matter of time for these fires with all the high heat and wind with no humidity.

Thanks Justin, we appreciate the hard work of those fighting this thing.


We are on the south side of the fire. Today it seems to be moving away from our place


Cooverwatch glad you got them moved. I only had 2 and that was a handful.

Prayers sent for you guys fighting this and those in it's path

Nice man - Keep up the good work. I am certain it is MUCH appreciated!

On another note I am kinda jealous of some of the stuff you guys get to see behind the lines. I am sure you get to snap some amazing pictures and see even more while you guys are hard at work.

Thanks Again Justin.

I just watched a video that showed how the fire crews save a house/structure. It looked like they used very little water. I believe it was recorded by a videographer(SP) for CSFD. Very impressive and enlightening.

I am back at my house tonight. We are a little south of Burgess so the wind has pushed the fire north and away from the neighborhood we live in.

Justin, if the vale shots are they talk to Oliver Walquist he was my college roommate and I haven't heard from him since this fire hit so wouldn't be surprised if he's there. Be safe.
