Schultz Fire

Sunday, June 20, 2010

Just the day after the Hardy Fire, this afternoon had another bad fire going on north of Mount Eldon. This one quickly got out of control, and the wind was really blowing hard today.
Just starting out

The smoke quickly climbed up.

Lots of smoke.

We could see flame from this angle, people call it crowning, where fire are on top of the forest, not just the low grassy area. 6 hours later, the smoke has not died down, and the planes from yesterday looks like are grounded today due to high wind.

I hope everyone in the region is OK.

Hardy Fire

This fire was fairly close to our neighborhood. We were on alert for possible evacuation, while 2 other neighborhoods were evacuated.
The fire fighters really fought this one hard, the planes and choppers were busy all day yesterday, since it wasn't too windy. By this morning, the smoke were pretty well contained. Whew. Really apprciate all the hard work by all the fire fighters.

We didnt' get as much smoke by our house, but just down the hill, by the driving range, the smoke really filled the air.

this was a close call.
