Rapidly growing Oak Fire nearly 18,000 acres 0% containment threatens Yosemite

Revelation 16:9 “They were scorched by the fierce heat, and they cursed the name of God who had power over these plagues. They did not repent and give him glory.”

Important Takeaways:

  • Oak Fire bears down on Yosemite and 2,000 homeowners who are REFUSING to evacuate: Wildfire is ‘0% contained’ despite three-day effort of firefighters who ‘haven’t seen fire behavior like this before’
  • Dubbed the Oak Fire, the blaze suddenly surfaced Friday and has since spread rapidly – prompting California fire officials to concede Sunday that the inferno was still ‘0 percent contained’ after burning for a fourth day
  • The fire has since burgeoned into the biggest the state has seen all year, with more than 3,800 ordered to flee their homes in remote communities in the usually scenic Sierra Nevada mountains out of fear for their lives
  • Firefighters successfully halted it from reaching the nearby communities of Lushmeadows and Mariposa Pines
  • Photos and video footage from the stricken region – a rural landscape home to nearly 18,000 – show the destruction left by the fast-moving inferno
  • The fire has since spread east at a rapid rate, putting pressure on officials to contain the out-of-control flames
  • At least 10 structures have been destroyed thus far, California fire officials said Sunday, and five heavily damaged – with another 2,000 still at risk
