Canyon Fire

As we left the house yesterday, we smelled smoke. Then, we started to see all the ash falling. The skies were completely covered in smoke. When you live close to forests, you get very anxious around fires & we couldn't tell where this one was. We drove south of town for about 20 minutes & saw the source - a brush fire up Corner Canyon. You could see the fire on the mountain - very close to homes. The kids loved watching the planes dump water. The fire got close to several homes & many people were evacuated. Luckily, no homes (or people) were damaged. By the time we left the store, you could see the mountains again - but my phone was dead, so I couldn't take a comparative picture.
