            Attjack - yes. Thank you VERY much for your concern. I just posted photos of the fire from where I live in another thread. I really appreciate the concern and feel very bad for your sister.

              Man that's tough to comprehend. I have a supervisor who just moved from that land of dryness and fires. His son still runs a logging company out there.

                    Just got word it's looking worse. Calfire says they think it will hit their property. There are 85 acres I hope the animals make it and their structures aren't lost.
