Fire

20181021_064143

4am Sunday I awoke to the sounds of crackling and popping.  I thought to myself, Is someone walking around outside our place? I looked out our side window and saw nothing. I pulled back our front door curtain and to my horror, I saw a fire raging.

I yelled, “Fire” to alert my husband two kids who were still in bed. We threw on our shoes, grabbed valuables and evacuated.

As I was running out the door, I dialed 911. Within minutes five agencies responded to extinguish the flames.

The darkness of early morning accentuated the orange blaze.

Our community gathered watch as the  neighbor’s house was engulfed.

Embers floated throughout the sky. Two more neighboring houses,  a tree and brush also caught fire.

The firefighters tackled it from all angles.  We so appreciate their bravery and skill protecting life and property.

I thank the Lord everyone safely evacuated their homes.

I learned during this crises that life is delicate and to cherish family, community and  an emergency/evacuation plan.

Blessings,  Rebecca
