    Holy cow, Rob! I didn't realize you were so close! Take care of yourself and family, and let me know if there's anything I can do!

    Rob, keep yourself and your family safe.... that's most important... as sad at it can be, everything else can be replaced. Still I wish the best that your home and belongings make it safely through this ordeal. All the best my friend.

  4. Prayers for your safety and for rain. We fought this here in Western North Carolina this time last year. We were all very lucky until the Gatlinburg thing happened. The speed with which a fire can turn deadly is unbelievable. Stay safe and let us know if there are things non-locals can do to support the firefighters, they really appreciated what the community here did to make what little down time they had better

    If only we could package some of this miserable UK weather up and send it over to help, stay safe and fingers crossed.

    This is amazing to me. That drone footage is nothing like what I'd expect. Not like the films of forest fires you see, where there is total blackening and total destruction of everything. This looks just like a nice suburban neighborhood flyover, except all the homes are demolished. Green trees still standing, no great amount of debris all over the streets, pretty orderly, just this malevolent force going through destroying homes.

    Still keeping the prayers and good thoughts sent your way, friend, and yeah, if there is anything we can do, just say the word.

    Just found this thread. So sorry Rob. I'm glad you got out even if you couldn't take all your stuff. I sure hope everything works out for you.

    Edit: I wish I could send you some of the 9 trillion gallons of water that Houston got last month.

    How horrible, I'm so sorry to hear about your place. I hope everything turns out to be not as bad as it might be, and I hope you and your friends and family and neighbors are all safe.
