OVER 80,000 ACRES AND STILL BURNING

GOD BLESS PLACERVILLE\POLLOCK PINES CALIFORNIA

DAY FIVE

It saddens me to blog about this,Back in July I wrote about "Family Time" camping at Sly Park Lake, A fews days ago I  started getting calls from family they were under evacuation notices,King Fire was burning along Hwy 50 in Placerville\Pollock Pines California.As the days went on people started coming together opening schools&Church's for shelter,1500 homes so far,My Neice called me saying " it looks like a war zone here,Helicopters,Fire trucks,roads closed & people in the streets standing around,smoke everywhere."All I could do was pray day and night,So far none of them have lost their homes and  as of Thursday they are allowed back in their homes.
The fire is spreading East and 80,000 acres burned so far its 10% contained.

Then I find out the cause and I am angry and hurt,   A 37 year old man is charged with deliberately setting the fire in El Dorado County.This man has criminal record of possesion of stolen property,grand theft and assault with a deadly weapon.His bail is set at $11 million.

The last house he broke into he set it on fire.One thing I seen in all this is the Community coming together providing support,shelter and a place for their pets.My Sisters' job provided 20 apartments for temperay shelter at no cost until people get back on their feet.Again I am reminded God comes thru no matter what!!!!Readers please send prayers to all those affected by one mans ignorance
