Photos & 2 videos of fire plagued Twisp (Washington) from Jim Haverlock (Web Wizards)

2010011314512835JimHaverlock-LMy partner in Web Wizards, Jim Haverlock, lives in Twisp, Washington, which has been the focus of national and international media coverage due to the major fires raging nearby and throughout the region. At one point Wednesday (August 19, 2015) night the flames came menacingly close to Jim’s place. A neighbor’s son, Sean Wilson, shot the photos below during the afternoon and into the night using his cell phone.

At nearly 11 pm Jim and his neighbors were told to “peg out” (evacuate) by firemen manning trucks just outside his residence, which they did. After a fitful night in a motel in a nearby town, Jim found out the fires that were moving towards his street had been beaten back by firefighters. He returned to Twisp Thursday morning and, thankfully, found his little abode untouched by fire and his power, water, phone and Internet services still in play.

Jim, who has been battling multiple sclerosis for over 21 years, gets about in a motorized scooter. His trips to nearby supermarkets, his bank, local places of worship plus various outdoor markets and such, has made him a familiar sight (A “human landmark”?)
