So far we've been lucky this year. I hope they can get it under control before any structures are lost.

Stay safe fire fighters!!!!

Friend of mine went through that area yesterday before the roads were shut. Said the smoke was so bad you could hardly see the road at some points. I agree, been pretty lucky this year with no huge fires. Firefighters seem to be getting on the attack pretty quick on what does pop up.
