Snowbird thanked the firefighters and first responders who worked together to put out the fire and save people’s homes. Rain added how they were praying for all those affected and asked people to reach out to one another.
Firefighters have managed to contain the blaze that affected many acres of land.
Rhain Alisha, who was seen holding a child, reiterated Snowbird’s message by simply thanking the firefighters for their assistance. She happens to be Noah’s wife.
REACH OUT TO EACH OTHER
Noah appeared again to plead with people to reach out to their communities and help where they can. The group concluded their message by adding:
“God bless, and everybody stay safe!”
HOW YOU CAN HELP
In the caption of the post, the Bush family urged people to contact the American Red Cross or call 1-800-RED-CROSS to assist those affected by the blaze. The reality television stars live together with their parents in Okanogan County.
According to the National Wildfire Coordinating Group, the wildfire spread to the north quickly until winds turned it towards the east in the afternoon on August 18. However, the group explained, at the time, how the blaze was mostly moving in a northerly direction.
FIRE IS CONTAINED
By Friday, August 21, 2020, the fire had been contained after affecting around 17,735 acres. On Tuesday, August 25, 2020, thirty structures were said to have burned.
In 2018, family patriarch and matriarch, Billy and Ami Brown moved their family to the Pacific Northwest in Washington. The move came after Ami battled a cancer diagnosis.
This year has come with its own challenges for the Brown family. On March 9, 2020, Bear received some good news when he welcomed a son named River.
However, he and the child’s mother, Raiven Adams, called it quits on their engagement. During the same month, Bear revealed that he’d petitioned the court so he could be established as the child’s father.
The once happy couple ended up breaking up before the child was born. Reports stated how Adams tried to keep the child away from his father leading to Bear’s petition.
