Is she with her family in Arizona after all? Meri Brown shared some photos and videos from her house to her Instagram Story on July 21, and it definitely seems like she’s living in Flagstaff these days with the rest of her Sister Wives family. But how much is she really with her husband, Kody Brown, or the rest of the wives?

Meri, 48, shared a series of shots on her Story indicating that there was a wildfire near her house. “Super efficient and getting lots done today until this forest fire started only about 15 miles from me,” she wrote. “Don’t worry, I’m already freaking out … ” She added, “No seriously, I really am!” in the next slide, in case anyone was wondering how earnest she was.

Meri then added a picture of a yard and some trees and wrote, “View from my window,” and nothing seemed too out of the ordinary in the shot. However, the reality TV star then added two clips indicating that something was going down in the woods outside her property.

Over the first video, she wrote, “This is crazy …” and showed a helicopter flying overhead. The next clip continued footage of the chopper and was captioned, “Days like today I’d rather live in the desert and not the forest.” According to Wildfire Today, the Museum Fire north of Flagstaff had already burned 1,000 acres by the morning of July 22, and some pre-evacuation notices went out to nearby residents. Meanwhile, Meri’s bed and breakfast over in Parowan, Utah had no similar disasters occurring anywhere in the region. That’s a pretty good indicator she’s in Flagstaff, despite what some Sister Wives may think about her really living at her business.

But just because Meri is living in Flagstaff like the rest of the Brown family, doesn’t mean she sees them all that much. In mid-May, a source told Radar Online that Kody’s home base is with fourth wife, Robyn Brown, and that at that time, he hadn’t gone to another wife’s home “for almost a week.”

Plus, the outlet reported in February that Meri is renting a house in the Brown family’s new city that is nine miles from Christine Brown’s three-bedroom, two-bathroom home. Radar also reported that she is 13 miles from Janelle Brown’s home. So while Kody, 50, and his wives do all seem to be in the same city, it appears that they’re still not living together or even all that close to one another. But hey — at least Meri is in the same state, right?
