For those of us that live in the west, we know about fire season. But are we really prepared?
This is a fire near my house (not close enough to be in danger) that was 30 acres on Friday and was declared over 5000 acres last night. You could see the flames from just about the whole valley when the wind changed to blow from the south and blew the smoke to the north. And last night, you could see the glow through the smoke.
I knew that this was going to be a big one on Friday when 2 fire bombers showed up. You don’t send fire bombers for a 30-acre fire.
Be safe my fellow westerners!
