    Wow I would have thought BC was to wet to ever burn!

    the person taking the video could have simply turned the phone and showed the entire fire - tempted to insert cheesehead joke here lol

    Sounds like you need a fire break. Is that possible where your house is located?

    we're ok on 3 sides, but at the back of the house, the trees are right there. the house is insured, but we have 2 horses. it looks like if we are forced out fast, then the horses will have to be turned loose, so we can save our own butts. it's will be crappy

    It's dryer than a popcorn fart out there with wildfires everywhere. Hope ya'll won't need the water drop helicopters to fly over your house. One of our sons came out to our house this weekend and was surprised how close the fire got to our house.

    This weekend our neighbors who lost their house started cleaning up. Probably had to wait for fire investigators and/or insurance people to finish their on-site investigations.

    Stay safe.

    We're having a ton of fires (grass & sage brush) out in the deserts everywhere. The bad part of the fire season hasn't even started here due to the high snowpack we had in the mountains. However, our state rarely gets by without "the big one" anymore up in the mountains, so we're not too far off in experiencing what you're going through.
