    Default Need Prayers - Carr Fire Redding

    Hi everyone,
    asking for prayers please. My aunt and uncle evacuated, we presume their home is destroyed. They went to my parents home, which is under voluntary evac. orders. They have all left and headed to the southern edge of town.
    The fire exploded early evening and entire neighborhoods are presumed lost. One fireman has died in a dozer accident.
    The fire started west of town and is basically marching east with no containment. They have abandoned fire protection and are focusing on evacuations only.
    thank you forum friends

    I heard about the Redding fire on the 5 a.m. news when my clock radio alarm went off. The radio station staff were evacuating. The fires this year have been just devastating. I pray your family & others will be safe.

    Many prayers for those affected. I think anyone in that area are needing our prayers. So sorry for the loss of the fireman who lost his life and for his family. Certainly lifting prayers for your family. Great sadness to have lost their home, but a blessing they are OK.

    We live in Redding and not officially in an evac zone but very close. We started prepping early, bless my dh who put all my quilts in plastic bags and packed in trunk. When power went out about 9 pm we left, stiffiling hot with no air cond running. We spent the night at my sister's about 20 minutes away. Came home this morning and we're ok for now, knew from neighbors that power back on. You hear street names and know they sound familiar but when I heard 6-8 houses destroyed on one street that I knew was nearby I looked up on google map and it's only 2 1/2 miles away. Keeping close eye on local news all day. We have two dogs and it def stressed them out too. Ever since we got home they been just laying around and sleeping.
