I just had to post this photo that I received on line. It was taken by a fire behavior analyst by the name of John McColgan. The fire was in the Bitteroot National Forest in Montana. I always get very sad when I hear of a fire out of control, burning miles and miles of trees and killing little animals. And to think that sometimes these fires are set intentionally. We just had a terrible thing happen in the middle of the state last week. They were doing a controlled burning in the Haines City area and it got out of control.
The bad thing about that was it was early in the morning and there was a very thick fog anyway but when that was combined with the smoke visibility became impossible. On Hwy. 4 there was a 70 vehicle pile up, several people were killed and a lot of others hurt. There was no way to see and the only way they could find people was to follow the cries for help. Let us remember these families when we are thanking God for all of our blessings.
