Forest fires in western North Carolina


Seen on Facebook:

Please pray for us here in western North Carolina. The forest wildfires are all over the area with forced evacuations. At least 550 firefighters are battling thousands of acres of fire with less than 20% containment. These mountains are steep and dangerous and high winds are forecast for tomorrow and no rain forecast for another week. The United States Forest Service Incident Management Team is here now. For several miles in any direction from here its thick smoke and the sun has been red for days.

These fires are very close to where I live.  You can barely see the sun and the sky is red and the air smells like smoke.
I’ll be driving to Chapel Hill for a few days.   I’m leaving in about 15 minutes after I finish packing.
Please pray for my safe trip there, and also for an end to the wildfires here in western NC.   Thanks!
