  1. Fingers or whatever you do for luck...We need it. this fire is going to burn the first house we looked at when we moved here....thank God my wife hated the house, it will be gone soon....It is quite a ways from us but if the wind were to shift to the East we would be right in it's way. Should be over 100K acres by nightfall and GROWING...There are a lot of people that are in trouble right now and I hope they all get out okay. Thanks in advance for your prayers.

    The news showed some shots of the devastation. Looks pretty nasty.
    You and the family be careful.

    Any ideas what caused it? Today while driving I saw 4 different people throw lit cigarettes out their windows while going down the road. I can’t understand hwy smokers need to do this, happens all the time too. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    Kirby the 100K acre fire he mentioned was started by an illegal camp fire. Can you imagine 100K acres in less than 2 days? It is smokey here, and according to the paper the smoke is blowing into South Dakota.

    I wish so bad that I had some body dependable to run my lawn biz, so that I could go on wildland fire dispatch to help.
