Terrible time

I believe that my good friends Ron and Crystal Wylie lost their De Luz house yesterday in a fire. I am numb and feel so terrible for them. I am still waiting for the exact details. These are the second friends to share the same fate in the last two months. I hope that the community can come together in some way to help them. Unfortunately bad things sometimes happen to wonderful people.

I am so sorry to hear this! My condolences to your friends. On the plus side, I think the fire department did a good job keeping the fire in the wildland to 1/4 acre. It could have easily been devastating had they not stopped it.

On the afternoon of Sept. 8 a non-forest-related wildfire swept through the towns of Phoenix and talent here in southern Oregon. More than 2300 homes were changed into smoke and debris in a matter of a couple of hours. Mine was one of them, so I know exactly how your friends feel. We got away with the clothes we were wearing plus a few other garments and essential documents - it pays to have a go-bag, even if its for only a few days. Fortunately, we had the foresight to have good insurance, so we're doing o.k - many others didn't and aren't. I hope your friends were prepared.

They had no power and nonsubstantiated reports are that there was no water either, the sdge shutdown not allowing them to draw from their well... A terrible tragedy.
