My mom & I were in town Monday, but my sister & dad were here; thank goodness.
The firefighters, forest service, & neighbors all came out to assist, bringing the helicopter & the bulldozer to help with our situation. They immediately had things under control & then left the next day (Tuesday) around 7:30 at night; just a little too soon.
The wind had picked up & what the fire crew thought was out, took off again down a draw.
Fortunately, there was a big rain shower that helped put some of the grass out! The firefighters came back out & by Wednesday afternoon, the entire fire was out.
A big THANK YOU to ALL of the firefighters fighting to keep everyone safe! Your service is greatly appreciated & highly taken for granted!
Never overlook your neighbor! They are the ones who will drop everything & come help. A big thank you to them as well! We are so incredibly blessed to have such great people surrounding us.
I also thank God for protecting us & all of the animals that were in that pasture, & sending rain to help put the fire out! Thankfully, no one got hurt.
The fire ended up burning a total of about 190 acres in our mare's pasture, as well as one of the winter pastures, for our cows.
Fire photo credit to my mama! I just stole her camera for the rain photos. My camera is still in the shop.. );
Some of these are a little blurry.. rain got on the lens.
Thank your local firefighter & pray for rain!
