San Marcos Fire Burns Multiple Structures, 0 Percent Contained

I ask for your prayers and healing thoughts and energy for San Diego County fires. We are in a state of emergency, 9 fires are currently burning. San Marcos fire is the worst now, 0% contained. No injuries have been reported. Over 9,000 acres have burned and many homes have been lost and many are without power. Many districts have school closings. Arson is suspected as so many fires have broke out in #SanDiegoCounty and no known cause of origin. My family is fine as we are south of the fires but fire is headed south. I am tweeting and on Facebook sharing resources for those who need to evacuate and place their animals. Please pray for the #firefighters who are working around the clock to save homes and lives. Our resources are at their limit as random fires have popped up as well that they have had to put out. Santa Anas (strong winds) and triple digit temperature are aiding in the spread of these fires. #thankfirefighters
