Yesterday’s fire was in an open space area where we take the pup to let her run off-leash. It looks like the fire was stopped very close to some of the houses out there. Definitely a little too close for comfort.
I stopped by the side of the road to snap a few shots – didn’t go out where I would have gotten better ones (maybe when I have more time). The whole hillside is black – that isn’t just shadows. I over-exposed the photos a little to help show this.
Maybe you need a firebreak in the backyard. 😉
Thanks for the coverage/pictures, Alex.
Welcome to Colorado….
This is unusual for January… but it’s pretty much the norm for summer when everything dries out. I don’t think we had a big one last year though…
i’m in thousand oaks/newbury park, CA. fires came too close for comfort here as well the past week.
