INCREDIBLE: Washington Survivalist Decides to Ride Out Wildfire in Specially Built Home… Says Home Showed Zero Damage After Flames Passed
As flames quickly approached John Belles Okanogan County home he knew that authorities would be spread far to thin and unable to take care of everybody. Due to this, Belles made the decidion to ride out the fire in his specially built home and pray for the best.
With flames reaching 20 feet in height surrounding the entire property, Belles admitted that he didnt know how it was going to work out, but that for the most part figured he would be pretty safe inside the building.
Though the property had never been fire tested until that moment, Belles stated that the concrete home managed to stay cool inside despite the terrifying conditions outside.
John Belles built his house, a concrete dome, specifically to withstand anything and everything nature could throw his way in Okanogan County.
Belles said he didnt have much time before the flames from the wildfire thats now more than 227,000 acres in size were already on his property. The flames were raging about 30 yards away from his property before he decided to take shelter in his home.
He said he knew that moving into the valley would be risky, given the weather and fire risk, and he also knew that police might not always be able to help out right away. He didnt want to have to depend on anyone, so he built the concrete house.
