How Bad Are the Fires? Listen to This Short Video From Yesterday’s Fire Meeting
Yesterday, August 2, a meeting was held in Blocksburg at 10 a.m. This video was taken by Michelle Bushnell who lives in the area.
Here’s a sample of what the Cal Fire spokesperson told residents, “Ruth Lake is the big story right now…[Blocksburg is] not Number 1. I can’t even guarantee we are number two…This is not a good situation…Let’s get the elderly and children out of town.”
Listen to the whole piece below.
Keep in mind that this was yesterday. Since then more resources have come into the area and a backfire was set last night that helps protect the town. Still, this helps give an idea of how our emergency crews are spread as thin as butter right now as fires rolls over our wildlands and close to our communities.
