Fire update

We mentioned the Whetstone and Meyers fires in the past and
things have gotten interesting out there. The two fires are now
one and cover 11,593 acres.

Evacuation notices were issued as this fire keeps raging. Low
humidity, no rainfall, and winds have not helped the fire
fighters. As of 14 hours ago the fire was burning with even more
intensity and expected to get worse today.

The fire is 25 miles SW of Phillipsburg, Montana. To see the
last incident report on this fire, go here.

Comments are always welcome.

    It’s amazing how fires can become one. I hope all heed the evacuation notice~things can be replaced, but lives can’t. Hope Kenny is doing well out there as well as the rest of the firefighters. They’re well trained professionals and I trust that God is watching over them.

    Mamabear,
    not sure how it works but the weather has been more favorable for
    the fire. Last I heard Kenny is doing great and learning as he goes.
    We hope He is watching over them also.

    Granite County has issued a stage 2 restriction. This includes, no campfires, no outdoor smoking, no use of outdoor heaters, as well as the use of an internal combustion engine is prohibited from 1:00 pm to 1:00 am. This is just a few of the restrictions. The fire fighters here are amazing and busting their tails to do all they can. Thank you to everyone out here giving their time to this fire.
