Residents evacuated, vacationers flee Idaho’s massive fire

Evacuation order in Idaho’s Beaver Creek Fire expands to 1,600 homes

by Associated Press & KTVB

BOISE — About 1,600 homes were evacuated in central Idaho as fire officials took precautions ahead of a large, unpredictable blaze burning east through sage and pine trees toward the resort communities of Hailey, Ketchum and Sun Valley.

Fire officials said Friday high, gusty winds, low humidity and tinder-dry vegetation created unstable conditions surrounding the 85-square-mile Beaver Creek Fire.

One home was destroyed Thursday night, said Bronwyn Nickel, a spokeswoman for Blaine County, where the fire is burning.

More than 800 state and federal firefighters were dispatched to the blaze in the affluent resort region that’s a second home to celebrities such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tom Hanks and Bruce Willis.

In addition, private insurers have sent in their own crews to provide structural protection for homes with values that can reach tens of millions of dollars, Nickel said.

Is There a Big Earthquake Coming Soon!

Over the past two weeks there have been many, many earthquakes greater than magnitude 5.0

Is this just a precursor of what is to soon happen?  Are these quakes “before shocks” beginning to release their energy prior to some massive worldwide earthquakes?  The intensity and quantity of earthquakes has been intensifying over the past several months and even more so over the past month.  Not only have we seen many, many earthquakes, but also the beginning of many, many volcanic eruptions around the globe.  Volcanoes which have been inactive are starting to wake up!  Are these all warning signs?  I believe that this is just the start of something that is soon to occur on a massive scale, on a magnitude we have before never seen!
