More on the Fire...

I no longer believe that this was a "controlled burn". I think the Army is just doing a cya on this one. Anyway, yesterday and today it has been RAINING. Thank you, Lord!

From the KY New Era:

A fire that apparently grew from Fort Campbell to an area of rural Trigg County this afternoon threatened to burn some homes in Roaring Spring.

Firefighters were working to prevent the fire from spreading from woods to houses along Compton Road, which is off Military Road at Roaring Spring,

At least five rural fire departments, including Roaring Spring and Herndon, along with Fort Campbell firefighters and the Kentucky Division of Forestry responded to the blaze.

Andrew Watts, a member of the Herndon Volunteer Fire Department, said he was working in an area along Kentucky 164 near Roaring Spring. He estimated the fire involved about 200 acres but added it was difficult to provided an exact size of the area burning.

"They will not be able to extinguish the fire, but they are trying to contain it so it will burn itself out," Watts told the New Era.

He said the fire involved mostly woods. South Road, Linton and Square Deal firefighters also were assisting in the effort.

Fort Campbell military base is only a few miles from our place. This fire is too close for comfort. We have been seeing and smelling it for 3 days now. My question to FC: Why on earth were you doing a controlled burn when this area is under "no burn" drought conditions?!

Lazy Dog Video

This is our 6 month-old Great Pyrenees puppy, Jack. I think he's figured out how things work around here. (I apologize for the blurry part in the middle of this video. It was technologically necessary.)
