Four families lost their home, one has a home that is damaged. One has a shed that is gone that almost melted the one side of his mobile home, and then the shed is owned by a lady that lives several street over.
Rumors have it that 5 or 6 kiddos under 5 lived in the duplex, two separate families, in the larger side. An elderly gentleman that had lived in the other side of the duplex has lived there for decades. I'm not sure about the last house to burn.
Three of the places have been bulldozed. And is still smouldering.
We had 14 fire departments here, 27 units and 87 firefighters, police, EMTS here. It started at 3 pm and they drove away about 9:30 pm.
Mic and I were over at a neighbors house wetting her fence, house and roof, and were amazed that the heat was sooo very strong 3 houses away. It was like being in an oven. And the firefighters were in the midst of all this.
I salute all these guys and gals.
Red Cross is taking donations for these folks and if you contact me with donation wants I will give you the local information.
Please lift all these people, homeless and firefighters and crew up in your prayers tonite.
I still smell fire.
