Alaska is burning! Edit with pics!

Posted by   + Show Post

We have forest fire that is bigger than Seattle. It started May 19th and has burned over 150,000 acres so far. It is only about 20% contained. If I drove to the fire it would only take about an hour to get to the edge of it. The officials have evacuated people closest to the fire. There about 400+ firefighters on the ground and in the air fighting it. So if you pray keep us in mind if not then send good vibes. By the way a camp fire not put out properly started it.
Thank you for reading!

Some people and news groups seem to believe that Alaska is not apart so the USA also we are far away from the lower 48.

Is it near you? Is there any chance you'll wind up having to evacuate, too?

I always hated fire season in soCal. Stay safe.

That is insane, and it starts with a little spark too. Hope it doesn't affect you in terms of losing your home!! I have never been near anything like that, I couldn't imagine.

The edge of it is about 45 minutes from me but would have to travel through 2 towns to reach me.

You, and all those affected are in the prayers of my dh and myself. My dh is from Fairbanks. He put himself through college working as a wildfire fighter up there. 

Stay safe.

Simple, it's Population.....here in Oregon we don't really get coverage due to not the population other states with fires have. (Though we burn every summer) Also, fires in California are much more devastating due to the winds they have.
