The Biggest Story In America That No One Is Talking About – Its Devastation Has Been Horrifying

A reader of ours has left some information on our Facebook wall, and we felt we should share it with you all because…wow. It’s heartbreaking.

The post reads:

Update: It’s being reported that all the fires in Montana have burned a combined 1,000,000 acres.

Montana State Of Emergency, Over 800,000 Acres Burned, No More Help, No Aid And No End In Sight

Our sister state of Montana has been burning for months and is in desperate need of help. They have been in a state of emergency since July 23 when Governor Steve Bullock signed a declaration.

Since then, the Lolo fire has been burning with only 31% of it being contained. Glacier National park lost one of its most treasured and historic staples today as of 6:00 pm., 530 structures have been burned to the ground along with countless people and livestock being evacuated. This is by far the worst disaster Montana has battled, so maybe you can help change that. Just by simply sharing this you can help, putting it in front of the eyes of people who can help. Social media is a powerful tool, let’s use it.
Please share, help Montana.
The woman who posted this on our wall mentioned that no national news or media is covering this AT ALL, and she’s absolutely right. My search for Montana wildfires only came up with local stations and evacuation updates. This thing is MASSIVE, folks.
