Tens of thousands flee fast-moving California fire
Tens of thousands of people were ordered to evacuate a fast-moving wildfire that exploded in size Thursday, threatening several Northern California communities and forcing panicked residents to race to help neighbors and drive through walls of flames to escape.

The blaze destroyed an unknown number of structures and injured some civilians, but the extent of their injuries was not immediately known, said California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection Capt. John Gaddie

As people fled in cars, some abandoned their vehicles, running from encroaching flames as they held babies in their arms and pets, said Gina Oviedo, who described a devastating scene as she evacuated the town of Paradise. Flames were engulfing homes, utility poles were crashing down and things were exploding, she said.

"It's a very dangerous and very serious situation," Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea told The Associated ...

This is just unbelievable...all of those poor people with no home to return to, memories burned to a crisp, places of employment burned down, concern for friends and loved ones they can't reach, and loss of life. Entire towns razed to the ground, forests and wildlife gone, and the inferno continues on, too overwhelming to get a handle on. I heard yesterday that the infernos were ravaging the landscape at a rate of 80 football fields per minute. Entire canyons on fire, etc.
I was watching some videos yesterday taken by those having to drive right through the inferno as they fled; driving through tunnels of fire, as both sides of the roads they were driving on were on fire, the entire length, and then there were all of those vehicles that got trapped, with flames all around, and nowhere to go. I can't imagine the fear of knowing you're about to be consumed. Thank God for all of those who did escape with their lives...

Hi 2Cent...careful there because not all of California's residents are in-line with the liberal ideologies of the elected officials. There are many God-fearing Christians who live there, and churches that are doing their best to reach out to the lost. Yes, 50+% of its residents are liberal, which is evidenced by election results and the various bill approvals. Interestingly, California was a Republican stronghold for 40yrs, but for some reason, turned liberal from '92 until today.

Anyway, this wildfire is beyond tragic. Five vehicles got trapped on a dead end road, I believe, while attempting to flee. Suddenly, they were surrounded by flames on all sides. They came to a full stop, rolled their windows up, and had no choice but to sit and wait for the fires to consume them. Just try to imagine that for a second, knowing you're about to be burned to death with nowhere to run, and the slow, painful death that was upon them. I'm beside myself just thinking about those poor people and that horrible end. We can only hope that they were children of the Living God...

We must never rejoice at the judgments of God which may affect innocent people. However we must also remember that as the psalm says “ God is angry with the wicked every day”, and pray that these disasters will cause many people in California to repent and get right with God.

We must also pray for the truly evangelical churches in that state and for the preaching of the Gospel there, I have some distant relatives from my father’s side there, though I am not in touch with them.

Me too, CJ. But instead the Lord Jesus Christ paid off our penalty.

For he hath made him to be sin for us, which knew no sin, that we should be made the righteousness of God in him. - 2 Corinthians 5:21

So far, the deadliest fire in California history.

BBC wrote:
At least nine people have been killed and more than 150,000 evacuated as two big wildfires rage in California, officials say....

West of Los Angeles, the Woolsey Fire jumped a major highway and headed into coastal areas, including the town of Malibu where some homes are ablaze....

Both fires are moving fast, fanned by strong winds.

I am thankful our Lord is as merciful to us all as He is, because I deserve so much worse than the fires of California.

And when his disciples James and John saw it, they said, "Lord, do you want us to tell fire to come down from heaven and consume them?" But he turned and rebuked them. (Luke 9:54, 55 ESV)

More of God's judgement on that filthy despicable state. Unfortunately, they deserve a whole lot more than what they've been getting.
