Mountain Fire evacuation from Idyllwild family’s point of view

Historical author, Joanne Bischof is just one of the displaced Idyllwild residents who gathered with her family, outside of Garner Ranch near Lake Hemet to watch the firefighters do what they do best. “These guys are on it.” Bischof said.

Families, friends, and loved ones have set to posting Facebook images of the volcanic looking plume, the angry slash of orange, red and the dark black of it, showing this fire is not short on fuel.

Bischof’s simple Facebook entry, “We’re leaving” along with a picture of approaching smoke tower marked their intentions when the evacuation was ordered. Unlike many who are staying at the evacuation centers, the Bischof’s feel blessed they can stay with relatives. “We are staying with family near enough to keep an eye on things.”

While Bischof and family packed up and headed out, this historical fiction author’s fan base sent prayers and worried posts to her Facebook Fan Page.

Taking in the scene, the Bischof family took pictures, video, and helped their three small children pray for the firefighters.

“The kids are doing good. They pray for the firefighters. We try to keep them informed but also to stay relaxed.”

What better way than seeing the actions and endless work of the nearly 3000 fire personnel guarding everything they, Idyllwild, Fern valley, and other evacuees hold dear.
