Fire Across The Street From Our House - Right Now!



It started this afternoon. As we were turning on this road we noticed a thick smoke, and a police office closing the road. We found out the fire is a brush fire in the end of the street here in the subdivision we're in. Just as it was almost "contained" on this side, because of the strong wind, some "fire" crossed the highway and ignited some dry trees and bushes on the ranch across the highway. And so it's on fire at this very moment!

I think we're ok, but it never hurts to pray for safety and protection. Please join us in prayers. Thanks. I'll update you later ...

UPDATE: The wind is moving to the direction away from our house so the fire is now far away from our house. Please pray for everyone's safety especially the firefighters who are all working so hard to contain the fire.

Oh, it "Weekly Winner" time already. I guess these are my winners for this week :). Go to Sarcastic Mom Blog for more
