Wallow Fire Eclipses Rodeo-Chediski

We received these two images from amateur photographer Mason Byrne… and, if the billowing plumes of smoke are any indication, the devastation on the ground must be absolutely horrific.

UPDATE: The Wallow Fire is now the largest wildfire to ravage the state, eclipsing the Rodeo-Chediski blaze of 2002. The Wallow Fire has burned more than more than 469,000 acres in Arizona and New Mexico.

Although the fire is only about 18% contained, according to officials, there is a silver lining. To date, only 31 homes have been lost to the fire. Rodeo-Chediski consumed 465 homes.

Taken from the shore at Hawley Lake.

Taken on HWY 260 15 miles east of Showlow, AZ.

  1. Seneca Creek Church in Gaithersburg, Maryland

    Our church here in Gaithersburg, Maryland on Firstfield Dr. has good sermons on the October 21 debacle in which our good president Obama will be of divine principle in which he will receive special instruction from God to rule the world and that is good news. The arson fire in Arizona is a reminder that hell is ready for the heathen and that we can go to heaven if we worship and praise our Lord and our good president Obama along with the Lord because by October 21, Obama will be our good Muslim God and American Prophet according to the New American Revised Bible which came out this past February. It is available in all christian book stores for $52.95 plus tax if interested.

    Understand that traveling has its paradigms but with the world the way it is due to the economy, traveling may become less and less because gas prices are going up. Our Seneca Creek Church here in Gaithersburg, Maryland is teaching the public on how to make our president a good God and Prophet so the world can put events on the news in perspective. The Lord has given us a good president and that he will help us deal with our negative economy in spiritual context.
