Marshall Fire

Recommended Posts

I'm still in shock over yesterday. Who would have thought a brushfire could cause such wide spread community destruction. We aren't talking about a normal wildfire in the mountains. This was a suburban area where the fires destroyed everything and anything in its path. I've never seen a fire move this fast in my life. One second a brushfire, next second homes, neighborhoods, and towns completely engulfed in flames.

I used to think Emergency 4 wasn't realistic when fires got out of hand and spread from building to building in minutes but now that scenario feels all too real. My heart aches for those that lost their homes. I live an hour north in a very similar setting and I still can't imagine suburban neighborhoods like the one I live in could be burnt to the ground. One day you can have a roof over your head and the next day it could be gone. Be thankful for what you have, it can all easily be taken away or destroyed quicker than you'd ever think. Praying for everyone that is going through the difficult times. Just for perspective, severe drought mixed with extreme winds one day.. snow and winter storms the very next day. All this could have been avoided if it would of snowed just one day earlier. Over a thousand homes completely destroyed. An event that will stick with me the rest of my life. A true hell of a fire storm.
