Update on the Fire

Today they flew in more plans to put the fires out from above. The smoke is still strong in downtown.

Here is a good map post done a google earth blog about the fires.

I hear that the winds are supposed to reverse direction over the next couple of days which will stop the spread of the fires westward but not sure how they will affect the areas that have been passed, especially the areas that so far have been safe.

I am safe along with my wife. Downtown is far enough away from the fire along with having less vegetation that would give fuel to the fire. Thank you to everyone who has shown concern for us. Our prayers go out to the firefighters out there along with families that are being evacuated and being affected by the fires.
