Need prayers
My brother and sister in law live out in Lake Tahoe, NV where they are being faced with horrible fires right now. They have their business in South Lake Tahoe only 1/2 a mile from where the fire is right now. It has destroyed over 220 homes including one of their employee who thankfully was able to get her family and horses out before her home was completly destroyed. They are staying with their business while they still can. I'm so worried about them as well as my baby niece (she's in my avatar), it would be so horrible for something to happen to their business but I'm mostly concerned with their safety right now. Prayers would be much appreciated.

Thanks for the thoughts and prayers everyone. I talked to my brother last night and they are doing alright. Fortunatly where they live isn't so close to the fire but their business is. He spent hours on the roof wetting it down because there are ambers flying around and catching small fires everywhere. Apparently the weather has gotten cooler and the wind has lessened some so that is good for the firefighters to help control it a bit more. Thank God there haven't been reports of anyone killed or injured but its horrible how many people have been devasted by this (over 700 acres have burned).

My brother told me they were doing a pick-up (he owns a wedding rental business) near the area when the fire began to spread on Sunday and the flames were over 100 feet high! He said it sounded like trees were exploding and the huge trees were just crumbeling down. The fire officials are thinking that someone probably started the fire, whether on purpose or accident is unknown.
