Very frightening. We get fires on these hills in spring but nothing like that.

Goodness, Dave! I haven't seen this in our news at all - I hope they can get the fires under control ASAP - and that your brother and his home are safe.

yes mookins,
this is a pic of those fires.
the old mining towns suffered badly, the more modern villiages fared better, because they were not made of wood.
it is not going on now. just late in posting the pic.

Frightening yes but what a great pic.

Fantastic photo but of an awful subject. Very frightening...It reminds me of looking down the Okanagan Valley in 2003 which was an extremely bad fire year. The sky was a glowing orange for weeks. Even more frightening when the ash is falling on you all the time.
