I live in western NC and it is incredibly smokey here. Hopefully some of the rain that we got last night will help out. One of the fires was less than a mile from my house and land. Most of these fires have been started by arson and were not accidents. The fires that just broke out in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge yesterday have been terrible. 30 structures and 100 houses have already been destroyed. One of my friends from college lost her house and all of her belongings last night along with her mother in-laws house, step dads house, and husband's boss's house and shop. We all need to pray for rain and safety.
