fire devil

Wow...

We had a really breezy cold front come through today. Not too far from my house, is a rise. At the top is an expensive subdivision with many large houses right on the edge of the rise, where the views are fantastic.

Below that, when the front came in, a grass fire started. It climbed up the ridge, and got into the neighborhood. It looks like they may have lost 8 or so houses. Lots of flames. Dang.

(not personally in any danger. I'm too far away, separated by a road, and the wind is blowing the wrong direction, and the winds are not quite as strong as they were). Wow.
