Fire In Field5

A Bit of a Scare

So, yesterday as I was working on my computer I glanced out this window and noticed a dark cloud. At first I thought it was a huge raincloud but then I realized it was dark, billowing smoke clouds. As I ventured outside to see what was burning, my stomach turned. I heard sirens and knew it wasn’t good.

I stood here for the longest time trying to figure out what to do. I could see flames right over the tree line straight ahead. I saw a tractor in the field – he was stirring up dirt to help put out the flames! One of the neighbors had his hose out and was spraying his yard down. To be honest, I was very frightened.

I decided that I had to find out what exactly was going on so I ventured forward to find the field over the tree line burning. It was, oh so close to so many houses, including ours. If the wind changed, it would approach our house very quickly.

Thankfully the firemen were able to put out the flames very quickly and no one was hurt. To the right of this picture are houses, and I was standing in the neighbor’s side-yard.

Of course, these pictures are after the fact but to the left of the picture you can see where a barn burned down.

Here are a few photos from one of the local news stations!

I’m so thankful for how the Lord protected us!
