Mount Charleston residents flooded into a town hall-style meeting Sunday hungry for information about the nationâ€™s top-priority wildfire, which has chewed throughÂ 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.Â But, there's just something about when it's in your backyard that makes it so real.Â
Bless everyone who is a part of this situation, helping others to remain safe.
