    This is a bad one. 6 miles wide burn line, 13 miles deep and over 50 thousands acres have burned so far. 21 different fire departments are battling it with no end in sight. The highway patrol has close several highways down due to smoke. National Guard brought in helo's to drop water on the flames. Over 65 homes have burned down and 60 businesses have also burned down. What really sucks, it's heading our way. All this has happened in 24 hours. I hope they find the ahole that started the fires. Reports are that witnesses saw a man in a black pickup throw out a roll of burning newspaper that started the fire.

    It's the animals I feel for because we humans can at least get out of the way but they don't. Saying that, hope everyone is okay.
