Default me again.. fire.. my friends!!

baaaaaaaaaah... at this moment there is a huge fire raging through a part of my small small country

it started as a dune fire, but at the moment i am so worried about my friends there, who have their houses there, and their horses and animals. i follow the news closely now.. but it goes so terribly fast. i pray pray pray that it will be stopped. they are trying to stop it , but there is to much wind.

i am so scared. afraid. the words. i am just too far away too offer room for help for them ( stables, land for the horses). i cannot reach them in time anymore. the wind is wrong it goes very fast.

pray with me that it will not burn the whole surroundings. pray for the people, the animals.

and worst of all... there seems to be a pyroman active in that surroundings who started many fires, and also the dunes a few times last year.

this is not a season of dryness or so, we just got out of the snow and enjoyed a day or four without rain.. ... this could not have started naturally i think... and the sea aquarium.. is also in danger...

had to write it off my mind.

Where are you Silver Storm?

Wild fire is a scary thing. Living near wild land in Southern California I have had plenty of experience with it. I've nearly had my home burned more than once. It is very chaotic in the smoke when the burning embers are flying around. Good luck and I hope the fire is not close to you. If it is, get out.

I don't know what to say, but I know how you feel in some way. I've felt the fire near me and it's not a nice experience at all.

Try to be brave, and stay ready if it happens anything.

cmq, txen, zenityerkis, thank you!

no i am not near, i told them that i will offer help if needed, everyone or everything and of course every creature is welcome to seek shelter here. too far away too be at risk, but i must say that exactly one month ago, on the 14th march 0.25 there was a fire at my place with a lot of damage. so so so very small in comparance to this, and with no living creature in danger except for the rabbit of my neighbours that has been saved in time, but i still have problems to get sleep.

txen, it must be so scary, you have seen so much of the horror. i hope you and your beloved ones got all out of it safe. and that your house has been saved too.

here it is not a common thing. things like this never happen here, this is overall a very wet country. so it is indeed a chaos. i so hope that my friends *and all the other people of course* could get themselves and their animals away in time. the fire has now reached the first stopline before the houses. but the wind is wrong.

*huggs you all* i am thankfull for the safe place with friends i have here. you guys are the best!

Silver Storm, I am so sorry to hear about this. Where I live here in Florida we are not strangers to fires. Just a couple of years ago there were several very large fires in Georgia. We could smell and see the smoke here where I live. It makes you choke. You can't breathe it very well. It makes your eyes water and sting. I will pray for you and your community. I agree that this sounds kinda fishy since your geographical area is usually wet. It could be an accident or could be deliberately started. The cause of it is usually lost in the chaos of the fire. I hope that your friends are able to get out and into safety as well as their stuff/horses, etc. Btw, where are you from?

It's really an instinct to look out for you, you are one of us and i'm praying your friends make it out safely, this must be such a troubling time for you.

I hope they get out soon. When we had the fires, my family and I were safe. We were not in danger of evacuating but it did make things difficult when we went outside. For several days a smoky haze descended on our town. No fun!

I managed to find a single news story at Homes evacuated after fire in North Holland | Radio Netherlands Worldwide

I don't know exactly where the fire is burning, but looking at google earth some of the homes on the dune side of the last main road (Duinweg?) have a lot of vegetation surrounding them. Those are the ones to worry about. Further away there is much less of a chance of a problem.

We are all hoping for the best.

fkeu'itan: hugg thanks

txen: one of my friends lives at duinweg. it's a pretty rich community. most of the horses are resided at the south side, but the vegetation you talk about also houses a number of horses, not to mention the wildlife. breedingseason has begon and i just heard the army has forced people out of their houses and there are a lot of uncaught cats and other stock that remain there alone. even the animal patrol is not allowed to go there.
last news is that the first stopline seems so work, but than again, the wind is still wrong :/ here in holland we only have small firemangroups for local fires, it takes time to get more groups from surrounding villages. so it goes slow. but i hope they manage to stop it. and because of the wind there is a problem. but the last new is, fortunately, that none of my friends are in danger, for as far as i heard. and their animals are safe for now. *relieve*
