The following is the account of the fire from the perspective of Ricky and Justin primarily via the text messages and photos that were exchanged. It is an abridged version but includes the most critical messages relating to the fire over several days. As of this posting, the fire has burned 107,967 acres and is 85% contained. There have been over 150 homes/structures destroyed and 100+ damaged.
Here is the mostly-unedited video of Ricky's first drive into the Yellowstone Creek Ranch fire zone going to Autumn Rock. As an FYI, the first two pieces of music Ricky composed and recorded in his new recording studio just two weeks before the fire. This video is 54 minutes. It is somewhat haunting, hypnotic, and mesmerizing.
Finally, here are images Ricky took in the fire zone, and other before/after images.
