Fire – The Aftermath

By Mark / September 2, 2012
Costa del sol Fire
Costa del sol Fire

When I decided to evacuate

On Thursday night a wildfire raged through southern Spain where we live. Living high on a mountain we watched the fire in the distance race down the valley opposite. We knew what they were going through as almost a year ago we had to evacuate due to another wildfire.

Then at about 11pm the wind changed direction and we were suddenly in the path of the fire.

Approaching at over 30 mtrs per second It was within 500 meters within 40 minutes we grabbed what we could and fled down to the nearest town. We spent the night in the square with our friends until we were finally allowed up to our house 12 hours after we had to leave.

I arrived to a scene of utter and total devastation where we used to be surrounded by thousands of Cork Oak trees there was just charred remains. The first thing I saw as I entered the house were my two cars burned down to their shells and pools of aluminium where the engines and wheels used to be.

All the cables coming into the house were melted so we had no electricity, or phone it looks like it will be weeks before this is fixed

Our garden was still alight and we had to spend the next 6 hours putting out small fires when all we wanted and needed to do was to sleep, today 60 hours after the fire started we still have patches of fire springing up in what was our garden.

 

This used to be a forest

As I said at the beginning we were the lucky ones, one person nearby died , and 2 are in hospital with serious burns. A friend lost her house which was completely destroyed, they are left with what they were wearing. Thousands of others were evacuated and still haven’t been able to return home.

1 careful owner

We have only been inconvenienced and have lost stuff that we can eventually replace. Suddenly all those little worries we had last week have been put in perspective they mean nothing.

Now it’s time to start to get things back to normal.

I recently created a product about how to dominate on Youtube it’s not the usually rubbish you get told like Buy likes and views, it’s about how to convert your viewers to buyers or subscribers. I was planning to launch it at the end of september but I may bring that forward, if you’d like to be informed when I launch it please signup for my blog post notification list on the right.

In the meantime I have reduced 4 of my products to $9.11 If you’ve ever considered buying one of them now’s the time!  If not please spread the word.

Thank you for your support, it’s really appreciated

Wow Mark, I heard about that fire and I thought about you. I’m glad you’re safe.

I had a similar situation in 2008 when I was in southern Turkey. There was a wildfire and all we could do was just sit there and watch it come over the mountains. I had my bags all packed and a bottle of whiskey in my hands to calm my nerves. Luckily the helicopters were able to douse it before it got to us, but it sure wasn’t a fun experience.

Take care of yourself.

Hi Mark

We live not too far from you (south of Granada) and had seen the fires on the news.

Fires are so dangerous, and even though it isn’t known yet how this fire started, very often the cause was avoidable.

My thoughts are with you as you pick up the pieces and get life back to normal again. I am really glad that you and yours were unharmed, and that is the main thing.

And good luck with the phone/iPad and wifi

I actually saw the beginnings of the fire from my apartment and assumed that it would be contained. It was that damned wind which exacerbated the situation, spreading the flames westwards and access to the area was difficult (I’m told). It sure has been devastating along our lovely coast and so much damage to property and possessions but, thankfully, not too much human injury. The trouble is, what can we do to prevent these fires in the future? Seems like not everyone is as careful as they should be.

I hope it doesn’t take you too long to ‘pick up the pieces’ and resume normality. All the best!

Mark, I’m so sorry to hear about this devastation. I have been through the loss of my entire house from a fire (not a wild fire) as well, and it will take some time for recovery. But the most important thing is that you and your family are safe and okay. Things can always be replaced and those things that cannot we have fond memories of. I wish you the best of luck and the quick return to some sort of normality.

But it is still hard to have to deal with the loss of what you have worked for. I wish you the best. Keep your chin up. You still have a lot to give. And soon all you had will be replaced with even better things.

Hey Mark,

Sorry to hear about you and your family’s loss. But like you said, it’s time like these that make you remember what’s really important in life. You lost things that you can eventually replace. Some other people paid the ultimate sacrifice. You know I’m a full time firefighter, and I see so many people on my tour of duty become more concerned with the loss of their property and not their lives. Some things are more important…I’m glad that you guys are OK, and I’m sure you’ll be able to come out of this like a rising phoenix, BETTER THAN EVER!

Not to bother you with more bad news Mark — but I just tried to look at your Listbuilding Debunked sales page and AVG blocked it as a threat stating that something to do with an obfuscation exploit JavaScript threat came when trying to open the page. Not sure what that means exactly but if it is not part of the redirect script maybe the site has been hijacked or needs a spring-clean?

Sorry to hear your problems and the loss of those valuable cork oaks and other stuff — we are inland from Alicante and keeping fingers crossed no idiot flicks a butt end in the campo close to us! Hope your genuine ‘firesale’ brings in some quick recovery money but I’d get that issue checked in case other are getting put off by the message too!

Glad to hear that you came out of this as best you could. I though that it was only us guys in the western states of the US that had to live with this devil. I was a forest ranger a number of years ago, while going to college. Those guys deserve a lot of credit. Very difficult job.

Nothing brings reality back so quickly as having to deal with things like this. Seven years ago I was in New Orleans on business…it was over 2 weeks before I made it home. I am just glad that there is nothing to global warning, or I may be getting worry about this point.

Please include me on the list for your new product. I look forward to some serious insight into this topic. If it would help, I would be more than happy to prepay for it.

In the meantime, take care of you and your family. Your are in my thoughts and prayers.

Peace and love.

So sorry to hear of your troubles but at least you and yours got out safely which all that really matters.
Everything else can be replaced.
Trying to turn this into positive, once the dust has settled, this presents you with a unique opportunity to review to what extent your business was disaster proof. and what new precautions, if any, you’d take in future.
It would make a fascinating post and/or new product.
Wishing you well and hoping that you can start to get your lives heading back to normal as soon as possible.
By the way, you made no mention of your golf clubs. Did they survive?

Hey man so sorry to hear about your home. I remember meeting your wife in London and her telling me about how nice it was.

I am so glad you guys are safe.

If there is anything I can do or we as the IM community can do to help please let me know.

Thinking of you both :)

LOL, I make exactly the same mistake all the time. There’s probably a dozen words that I can’t type properly because they’re so close to IM-related words I type all the time.

I’m glad to hear you’re okay Mark. I’ve seen this kind of devastation up close, and pictures can’t really do it justice.

Hi Mark

So sorry to hear of your devastation, i have been in the same situation myself only 2 weeks before xmas, i lost everything i had as i had only just moved in and not had time to take out insurance., I lost all my kids presents…the absolute lot. All came out with was the clothes on my back, this was back in 2001 and to this day i still go looking for something that was obviously lost in the fire.

But as my way of contribution to your sad loss i have just made a purchase on a product of yours. I actually have all your products anyway, but….sod it, under the circumstances ive paid again. As i know….every little helps.
Good luck on your “new” start and im so happy that nobody was hurt which is the main thing here.
Best Regards
Alan

My brother was on holiday in your area last week and even though he was in the resort he said it was quite traumatic so I cannnot imagine how the residents in the hills must have felt. Fotunately your family is safe but we think of those who have been injured and bereaved. It is at a time like this when we take stock of our lives and the meaning of life. No doubt farmers in the area have lost livestock and it will take many years for nature to restore the destroyed vegetation. You are being remembered by many as move forward .

That must have been a really traumatic experience. I am happy it ended with you and your family escaping unhurt. Very sorry for the loss of your cars and the damage to your property. Could you give a link to the products are that you are offering at those discounted prices?
