  • Oh please God can we have no more fires for a day. Be careful fire fighters. you are our angels!

  • Thank you fire fighters and first responders, and thank you kym for keeping us posted you really perform a great service to our community, everyone be safe out there and stay vigilant it is sooo dry and low humidity means fires start and spread ridiculously fast. Being so smokey it’s hard to even spot a new one.

  • Hi Kim any word on the accident on 36 last night with 1144?

  • Thanks Kym!

  • Just saw (about 4:30) 10 structure protection engines headed west on 299 away from the Helena fire.

  • Fire mostly under control Pam? They lost there home

    • “Fire under control” means the fire didn’t spread to the forest of neighboring homes. So thankful for that. So sorry to hear someone lost their home.

  • My fucking house just burnt to the fucking ground with everything of mine my sons an mans stuff in it WE HAVE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING NOW !!!!

  • I really don’t want everyone talking about it or posting there thoughts on here I just lost everything an don’t have the energy to reply !!!

    • I am so sorry for your loss. It is great, it is overwhelming. What can we do for you and your family? How old is your son? Maybe some clothes and toys can be collected to start him off, knowing people care.

  • My condolences to the family who lost their home and personal possessions. I trust donation jars will soon be set up in most stores and banks to help them restart. Such a tragic and terrifying ordeal to have gone through. Is there a GoFundMe page set up yet? How can we help?
