Mount Charleston Fire in Las Vegas, NV July 2013. Started on July 1, 2013

A little infomation about the Fire out at Mt. Charleston:

Mount Charleston residents flooded into a town hall-style meeting Sunday hungry for information about the nation’s top-priority wildfire, which has chewed through 20,000 acres and threatens more than 500 structures/homes.

Since a lightning strike set the mountain ablaze on July 1 and 520 residents were told on July 4 they should evacuate their homes on the mountain, rumors have been spreading almost as fast as the fire.

A few residents said the Sunday evening meeting at Centennial High School was helpful. Evacuees learned their homes still were at a tremendous risk but also safe for the moment.

To be in the valley and experience the smell and the view of the fire is very sad in my opinion. I know nature has to do what nature needs to do.  But, there's just something about when it's in your backyard that makes it so real. 

Bless everyone who is a part of this situation, helping others to remain safe.
