    Several Fires close to us

    I am really worried for some close friends tonight. There was a transformer that blew and started a major fire tonight. The air quality has been poor here for a while, most days there is a haze everywhere you look.

    They have started a mandatory evacuation in Gatlinburg, Tn. a tourist town about an hour away from us. Please say a little prayer for the rain to last a bit.
    This one is only about 30 minutes away.

    Yeah we've had a fire raging for almost two weeks now not 15 miles from my house. Resources from all over the country were brought in, including helicopters from Alaska. They just announced today that it is 90% contained. It consumed over 11,000 acres. Of course the rain they've been praying for is coming tomorrow.

    Peacemakr40 is right. Also, if you can walk through your house and shoot as complete a video as possible, that's a good idea too. I've also seen houses saved by sprinklers put on the roof.

    Stay calm, think, and if you need to take action do it.

    TN is burning. It is breaking my heart. Many friends and co-workers are having to deal with these damned wildfires. There are fires all throughout the southeast. Stay safe everyone. Hopefully this rainy week will put out some of these fires.
