Safe for now

My in laws live in New Harmony. The have had a managed burn on the mountain burning for about a month. Last night it went out of control. At least three, maybe up to 7 or 8 homes have burned to the ground. My in laws are safe for now. This was the image from their home last night. Joe is out there right now with his parents doing what they can. The wind has picked up again today and so we're still praying everyone stays safe. Please keep them in your prayers.

Wow, this is all so crazy to follow. How hard to be so personally involved. Your picture is amazing though! Sad that it is in the wake of destruction.

I'm glad things are okay for now. I really hope it's in control (for real this time!) very quickly.

However, that top picture is freaking amazing.

That would be so scary. Those pictures are beautiful, even though they are of something so scary.
