Dixie wild land fire in Quincy, CA. (About 60 miles west of Reno) has burned over 200,000 acres of land. Captain Jeff Rose has spent much of his life in service to our community, so it was no surprise for me to see that he along with fire fighter Guzman were stepping up to help out another community in need of additional fire fighters.

"The blaze had already leveled at least 16 houses and other structures, but a new damage estimate wasn’t immediately available because flames were still raging in the mountain area. Firefighters carrying hand tools were forced to hike through rugged terrain where engines can’t go," said Rick Carhart, spokesman for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.
Please continue to keep not only our local fireman in your prayers, but all of the thousands working around the clock to put this fire out.
