Los Angeles Fires

More than 2,000 firefighters battle the Sesnon fire in Porter Ranch and the Marek fire .

The twin fires in Los Angeles have already claimed two lives and 49 structures, prompting authorities to suggest a hair-raising worst-case scenario -- that one of the blazes, which began near Porter Ranch, could burn all the way to the Pacific Ocean about 15 miles away.


Why you ask would I be posting this...
My love Scott left this morning to spend up to 2 weeks fighting the wildfires near L.A. He received a call last night from the Show Low fire cheif saying they need him to leave in the morning with 2 other guys from the SLFD. We were both freaking out. Scott was freaking out because he was so excited, you would of thought this kid won the lottery or something, he was so excited to go, he even is giving up his deer hunt with his 2 brothers. I on the other hand was at a doctor app. when he told me the news and I bawled the whole time, my doctor is AWESOME and said though he cant replace my husband he is there for me if I need him. I am so scared for a couple reasons, fighting a fire of course is dangerous, I know he will be safe and protected, but it is still a scary thought that he will be so close to a huge wildfire, I am scared that I am 34 weeks pregnant and I need to stay calm and not worry or I am putting my baby in danger. Everyone please keep all the firefighters and people in L.A in your prayers, there is alot of people being evacuated from there homes and leaving behind alot.
