    With limited resources to fight all these fires why hasn't the governor called in the guard to help?

    It has been many years since I spent time in Grouse Creek, Lynn, and Etna. But my memories of the people of that area, and Grouse Creek especially, are warm and good. I remember those living there (mostly Kimbers and Tanners) as some of the most kind, giving, down-to-earth, thoughtful and hard-working folks you could hope to met.

    I can't imagine how there is enough stock hauling capacity to get their livestock to safer pastures. Pray for rain and that the wind shifts to favors those fighting the inferno so good fire-breaks can be built. If the Bishop or anyone out there is reading this, tell us what we can do to help.

    If anyone in the path of these fires have Trash Pumps, could they please make mud and use the trash pumps to spray mud on all their stuff that they don't want to be burned up before they evacuate, and then evacuate. With all their stuff coated with mud, the stuff shouldn't be able to be burned much by the fire. If, on return, their stuff isn't burned up, they can simply wash the mud off, and still have their stuff.
