Yesterday was a roller coaster . . .
DH's ex's family thought they all lost their houses, only to return to assess the damage and find that their houses were all still standing - the grass, trees, sheds, woodpiles, fences . . . everything else was gone. But the houses still stood.
A fire raged less than 200 ft. from my parents-in-law's home. Their home was left untouched.
In my area alone, almost 5,000 acres have been reported to have burned. We know of at least 12 homes destroyed and two lives lost - nothing more at that point. In the adjoining county, there were over 12,000 acres burned, and we have no damage/casualty reports yet on that end.
We are unfortunately not out of the water yet, however. There are still at least two fires that we know of still burning, and the winds are supposed to pick up again today.
Please keep the prayers and positive energy coming.
Love you all.

Ouch anon. Nobody deserves this sort of thing to happen to them.
Prayers to you and everyone else affected by the fires. I hope it gets put out soon.
