The fire near our cabin is still growing and is 0% contained after about 36 hours. I can't believe that it started out as 1 acre about a mile from our cabin and is now 36,000 acres. They don't know many specifics. They say they are concentrating on life preservation measures so they don't have an estimate of the number of structures destroyed. We got a notice yesterday afternoon saying we needed to evacuate. We had already left on Saturday as soon as we saw how much the fire was growing. The fire intially moved away from us but has circled back toward us. So we just wait. There is one report of a missing person but they can't get into the area of the house to try and find the person yet. We are praying for everyone's safety and the preservation of as many homes as possible.
