Fires in Alaska

Currently we are dealing with a new fire. It is at Murphy Dome. Which is about five miles from Fairbanks. The smoke is so thick at UAF that they can't see the trees. I keep looking out my livingroom window and the smoke is just getting thicker.

My son Alex is working for forestry this summer. He said if the fire gets much closer to Fairbanks they will drop everything and go to work on this fire until it is out.

We have about 200 million acres on fire right now.

So it is difficult to breathe. So people are starting to wear mask.

I am asking everyone to pray for our area please.
