Channel 8 . . .

. . . has posted two videos of the "devastating scenes" from the Wise County fires here this afternoon. I would describe them but I can't get them to play. Sometimes I hate the Internets. Edit: WBAP has updated the fire damage to 640 acres and 16 structures.

The second one seems to work.

My heart goes out to all of the people that have lost their home. They are in my prayers

That just makes me want to cry. I feel so bad for everyone who lost their home.

I watched both of the videos. That is SO sad that so many people have lost their homes. I live on the west side of Paradise "in the country". All we can do is pray another one doesn't start up and they can get this one under control. Thanks for the updates BG! Great Reporting!

I think that after all this depressing news a Tuesday afternoon pick me up would be appropriate.

Wise County Burn Ban Established 1856

Seems like we've had to deal with this problem for a while in Wise County.

Couldnt see the videos..

So is this fire out now?
How many were evacuated?
When will they get to return if their home made it through?
Where did they take all the kids that were in school?

After fires, we alway hear, "FIRE INVESTIGATION".......so we need to know just HOW these horrible fires were begun. Each one of them!!

We who sit in the comfort of our homes should contemplate just what we would grab after our families and pets.

We have all thought about this - at least this poster has.

I live in Paradise, near the railroad tracks/51/114. I sat in my van with my dog in my front yard. I figured I could just drive away if the fire got too close. I could see the flames about .25 miles away, but the firefighters, the precinct crews, the state guys, all worked and stopped it from getting to me.

The burn ban would have had to included a "NO SMOKING" ban to prevent this fire. They are saying that a carelessly tossed cigarette caused the fire.
