Extreme Wildfires Update

The ‘Beginnings of Sorrows’ The five largest burning wildfires in the U.S.

Mark 13: 3 And as he [Jesus Christ] sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately,

4 Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled?

5 And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you:

6 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

7 And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. (Seven (7) Year Tribulation is STILL TO COME).

8 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.

The ‘Beginnings of Sorrows’, The five largest burning wildfires in the U.S.

As wildfire seasons in many areas throughout the nation start earlier and last longer, 2021 is on track to be another devastating year for fires.

As of Friday, there are a total of 83 large wildfires currently burning in the U.S., which have already destroyed a total of 1,366,587 acres, according to the National Interagency Fire Center.

With the help from unprecedented heat waves and drought, new fires are rapidly igniting, sometimes quicker than they can be contained. The fires, which have predominantly affected the western region of the country, have created nationwide air pollution and resulted in thousands of evacuations.

“We’re seeing an environmental change where we are more susceptible to these wildfires,” said Josh Dozor, general manager of medical and security assistance at International SOS. “It’s growing in severity.”

Using data compiled from Inciweb, a national wildfire tracker provided by the U.S. Forest Service, these are the country’s five active wildfires with the largest acreage burned as of Friday:

1. Bootleg Fire, Oregon

The country’s largest wildfire has burned 300,389 acres in Fremont-Winema National Forest, which is about 15 miles northwest of Beatty, Oregon. More than 2,000 personnel have worked since July 6 to contain the wildfire, which is when officials say it was first ignited by lightning and natural causes. As of Friday, 40% of the Bootleg Fire is contained.

As of Friday, the fire is third-largest wildfire in the state’s history, and is larger than the entirety of New York City. Its smoke has traveled as far as New York and Canada, according to images this week from the National Weather Service. The wildfire is now large enough to control the area’s weather with its pyrocumulus clouds that can generate lightning.

2. Dixie Fire, California

The quickly-spreading Dixie Fire near Feather River Canyon in Butte County, California has burned 142,940 acres as of Friday, and is only 18% contained. The cause of the wildfire, ignited on July 13, is under investigation and more than 4,000 personnel are working to contain it.

Dixie is currently the largest fire burning in California. Evacuation orders, warnings and closures have been issued for various counties in the area.

Forecasters predict weather conditions to become hotter and drier into the weekend, and incoming moisture in the air has the potential to create pyrocumulous clouds over the fire. There are chances for thunderstorms, which can also provoke the wildfire’s activity.

“The fire behavior conditions that we’re facing right now are really quite unprecedented, and at a historical level,” Cal Fire deputy incident commander Chris Waters said at a briefing Thursday.

3. Snake River Complex Fire, Idaho

The Snake River Complex Fire has burned 107,679 acres and is 74% contained, as of Friday. It is burning about 20 miles south of Lewiston, Idaho. Lightning ignited the fire on July 7, and although spot fires have sprung up daily outside of its control lines, but the fire has grown slowly and is being contained by the 208 personnel assigned to its mitigation.

On July 9, Idaho Governor Brad Little issued an emergency declaration and mobilized the state’s National Guard firefighters to help combat the Snake River Complex fire, among others. The state is currently experiencing its worst drought in years, with 87.9% under severe drought, according to the National Integrated Drought Information System.

“Wildfire is presenting an imminent threat to life, property, and the environment, and we need all hands on deck,” Little said in a statement. “I appreciate our firefighters and fire managers for working so hard under such challenging conditions, and I am grateful that our guardsmen are able to step in once again to support Idaho communities.”

4. Lick Creek (Dry Gulch) Fire, Oregon & Washington

The Lick Creek (Dry Gulch) Fire has burned 78,158 acres across areas in Oregon and Washington State. More than half of the fire has been contained and firefighters are now focused on cleaning up parts of the fire’s perimeter, according to Umatilla National Forest officials.

Lightning originally ignited several flames southwest of Asotin, Washington, on July 7. The following day, the fire merged with another nearby flame called the Lick Creek wildfire. More than 200 personnel responded to the fire which was described as having a “extremely dry” fuels with a “high resistance to control.”

Dry air has helped to keep the wildfire active, and a warm and dry weather trend is expected to continue throughout the weekend. Some roads and trails within the area still remain closed but certain evacuations have been lifted or downgraded.

5. Tamarack Fire, Nevada

Lightning ignited the Tamarack Fire on July 4 approximately 16 miles south of Gardnerville, Nevada. As of Friday, 58,417 acres have burned and it is was 4% contained. More than 1,000 personnel are fighting the fire.

The fire has destroyed multiple structures and has threatened at least 2,700 homes in Douglas County, Nevada, according to the state’s governor Steve Sisolak, who declared a state of emergency in response to the wildfire on Friday. Road closures and evacuations are in place for various counties in the area.

Officials said at a meeting Friday to expect multiple large aircraft in the sky that will support personnel with fire retardant drops. Officials forecasted strong winds could contribute to extreme fire activity for the next 24 hours with poor humidity and high spreadability.

“Thank you to all of our first responders, local government agencies, & nonprofit who continue to go above & beyond to assist our community during these trying times,” Sisolak tweeted.

Other significant fires this season include the Rafael Fire, burning in Arizona, at 78,065 acres with more than 95% of it contained, the Creek Fire which has been completely mitigated and burned 379,895 acres this month and the Johnson Fire in New Mexico which has burned 88,918 acres and is expected to be contained by Friday.

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).

. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).

. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).

. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).

. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).

1 Thessalonians 1:10. And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.
