Fire! In New Harmony....


This is I-15 heading north towards Cedar City.  The Interstate has been closed now because the flames have jumped the road and the smoke is so bad, motorists can't see.

So close to buildings.  Most of the residents have been evacuated to Kanarraville.

They have lost some buildings, I don't know if any homes have been destroyed yet.

Look how close to the horses the flames are.  I am hoping that the horses are able to get away.  This area is a large ranching and farming community.  It is a beautiful little valley.  What a shame.  It's about 20 minutes away from me.

I was wondering how close the fires were to you...I figured you would tell if they were coming close. I wish we would all get rain...here there are burn bans all around...our yard is brittle to walk on. Just so dry....and temps are supposed to go over 100 today.

Oh dear GOD, I hope they get everyone out of the way & those horses, too!!! Florida has an abundance of water from the tropical storm, so why can't all that be dispersed evenly or where it's needed, ya know! Get out if you have to, Susan, but I pray you don't have to!!! Be careful

I've been watching the news since we got back from Colorado- seems like fires are breaking out everywhere. I have a horrible feeling about what this summer has in store for us. Stay safe!~

Oh Susan,

How awful. We have heard here so much about the Colorado fires. And I haven't even listened to the Utah news.

I hope that someone took care of those horses.

I hope you are safe. Praying that all will be well.
Take care, Janet W ((hugs))
