This may well be remembered as the summer when the fires never end. There have been so many of them, in so many places, it is difficult to keep track. Per our firefighter blog, California has lost over 700,000 acres to fire so far this summer. And folks, we still have 3 months of fire season left!! Rain dances, anyone?
Just as we were being declared contained, another battle looms in Mid-Pines and Mariposa, up near Yosemite. It is the Telegraph Fire. It has already burned 25 homes, 27 outbuildings, and 9 firefighters have been injured, and it is only 10% contained. You can read further details about it from Capt. Mike (Ret) in the firefighters blog in my blog roll to the right.

**Sigh** we can only pray that it is contained much faster than ours was, and that there are no further loses. Our hearts are with those in the path of this fire and the fires yet to come.
