Let's just say, that flame and beetle kill is not a good combination. This weekend a fire had been started by man (the cause unknown) in the Church's Park area in our county. It spread about 350 acres before they were able to get 30% containment. We have been so blessed that the weather cooperated, very low winds and some moisture in the clouds and a higher humidity, most which is uncommon here in the mountains. Fortunately, no homes or people have been injured and no homes had to be evacuated. What a blessing! They are still containing the fire with a substance surround and dropping water by heli's, but hopefully the worst is behind us.
Praise the Lord for His protection and blessings during this time!
