Fire: Too Close for Comfort

Last night, shortly after dinner, our power surged and then went out.  I glanced out the window and saw smoke.  My stomach started to flip-flop nervously because the smoke looked really close.  My husband and I immediately got in the truck to get a better vantage point.  We ended up driving about two miles to the wind-driven wildfire.  The green house in the photos belongs to my husband’s co-worker.  He said the fire reached within two feet of his porch! Fortunately, his house was spared and the fire department was able to extinguish the wildfire within a short period of time.  Oh boy, I can tell it’s going to be a long, hot summer.
