Fire Update

The Rim Fire continues to grow and the more that 4,000 firefighters are working around the clock to get it contained and ultimately under control.
This photo was taken from David's deck...about 7 miles as the crow flies on Monday.
These were taken last night from the same spot.
Sharon says they think these are back fires that are used in controlling the wildfire...fighting fire with fire, so to speak. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
My mom received the following update from Sharon last night along with the these pics taken about 8:00PM.
"Not a lot of news.
Pretty quite today because for the first time the smoke didn't lift during the day.
Yesterday was the worst as far as the fire getting so far our of control. 
They had a tough go of it last night it jumped the lines several places"
  
Prayers are still needed.
