There has been a pretty large fire in my area today. It's been burning for several hours. I snapped some pictures a couple of hours ago when I was checking to see things. There are no police cars or fire engines in my neighborhood yet..so we're still safe. Everything smells like smoke though.
The first photo is closer to my house. It's about a half mile south of my house, and I am looking south. The hill this fire is on is seperated from the hill my house is on by a four lane road. The fire never jumped the road. The second photo is almost 180 degrees from the first one...and I am looking north. None of the houses here were burnt, but the brush all around them was.
