Kody Brown’s fourth wife Robyn has expressed her fear of living near forests because of wildfires – and her worst nightmare seems to be coming true.
First wife Meri revealed over Instagram story that she is “freaking out” over how close a wildfire is to her property, as she even posted a video of smoke in the distance.
But she isn’t the only one affected by the flames. The wildfire is also near Janelle, Christine and Robyn's homes, and near the $820,000 property the family purchased, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal.

Meri wrote on her Instagram story on Sunday, July 21, “Super efficient and getting lots done today until this forest fire started only about 15 miles from me. Don’t worry. I’m already freaking out…” She added, “No seriously I really am!”
She also posted a view from her window, which shows gray smoke in the sky.
She then uploaded a video of a helicopter that appears to be spraying water. “This is crazy,” she wrote.
Coconino National Forest said on Monday, July 22 that overnight crews were unable to conduct burnout operations, AZfamily.com reported. Firefighters are responding with ground crews, helicopters, engines and more. The cause of the fire is under investigation. The fire grew from 200 acres to 1,000 acres over night.
While pre-evacuation notices have been issued to communities near the fire, no home evacuations have been ordered.
The home Christine bought with Kody, and Meri, Janelle and Robyn's rental houses is near the communities where pre-evacuation notices have been issued. The $820,000 property the family purchased to build on in August 2018 is also miles from the fire.
As Sister Wives viewers know, Robyn has expressed her fear of living near forests, as she lived in Montana and endured wildfires before.
The Brown family moved from Las Vegas, Nevada to Flagstaff, Arizona in August 2018. They bought $820,000 worth of land to be split into four parcels. As of May 2019, Radar reported they have yet to build on the land.
