Out of control fire
At present our city is struggling with an out of control fire along the hills that border the south of our city. They have now been burning for nearly 3 days.
A large number of houses have been evacuated, a helicopter pilot was killed and at least 15 houses have been destroyed. It is also the end of summer here so the vegetation is very dry
Where we live we are safe although close enough to hear helicopters and smell smoke depending on the wind direction,
Please lift up our city. Next week it will be the 6 year anniversary of the earthquake that killed 186 people and destroyed large parts of our city. This is bring back all the memories that go with that time.
Also pray for rain and for favourable winds so its blown away from the residential areas.
