    I don't know how much anyone has seen about the fire out west ! But these are pictures about 15 miles from ACR Grandma and Grandpa (Jerry)


    A friend forwarded these to me. They are awe inspiring and terrifying all at the same time!

    Pete,
    Yes, we saw most of that first hand; those are great pictures of such a tragic event. Normally fire goes up hill in a mountain fire; however, we had 65mph wind out of the west that Tuesday and it forced the fire down hill into town.
    They let people go in there yesterday for 6 hours to view what was once their homes and for those whose homes were only damaged to get some belongings and head back out. There are still some smoldering spots among those houses.
    People had to be escorted in and out by the National Guard and police as deer, bobcats, mountain lions, bears, and other critters were forced out by the fire and they are all over the place; some even have been spotted close to where I live due to a large lake nearby and farther east on that side of town.
    Highway 24 West reopened this morning with one lane going West so fire fighters and equipment can use the other lane. The fire is 55% contained and still pretty hot. We could start getting a little monsoon moisture each afternoon after Wednesday, but that also comes with lightening and won't help much. If we get to much rain, those houses that are still standing could be washed on down the hill side.
    We are fine here and able to open some windows now without breathing the smoke; that changes as the wind changes also.
    Thanks for the pictures Pete and tell Chris thanks for her mail a day or two ago.
    Jerry
