This was a fire caused by humans. Although thought to be accidental, that doesn’t change the fact that thousands of acres burned leaving wildlife and six families burnt rubble where the they once had homes.

The Bull Run Fire, near Kernville, California is now a 2,400 acre fire, according to Forest Service personnel. Officials said flames have destroyed six homes and prompted evacuations.
This weeks’ paper said the fire is 100 percent contained, and that the number of homes lost is now eight. I’m not sure what the final estimate on acreage burned will turn out to be. As far as I know, no human lives were lost.
Several people I know had to evacuate work or their homes, and some are right on the fire line.
Here’s a BIG THANK YOU to the firefighters!

Please say some prayers for the people whose homes and livelihoods are in danger, and for the fire fighters risking their lives to fight this fire.
