We all grieve over the loss of 19 young firefighters who died trying to protect our little town from the Yarnell Hill Fire.

Everyone I know there seems to be safe as the evacuation came in time. My dearest friend was given 5 minutes to clear out of her home. She loaded her car with some valuables and her cat.

At least half the town’s homes and businesses are destroyed by this erratic and devastating over 8000 acre fire still at 0% containment.
People and animals have been offered sanctuary in both Prescott and Wickenburg.
I am safe at the North Rim but in a daze.
I can’t stop thinking of the loss of life and devastation of our sweet little town. My prayers go out to all the families involved.
Please pray for rain and no wind to help the remaining firefighters put this out.
