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!

Praying they get it out soon. An illegal campfire is what started the rim fire here last year. I pray yours doesn't get as big as that one did. 257,135 acres were burnt :( it used to be so beautiful there...

No not winter but an early dry spring and lots of beetle kill trees.
