Brush Fires Close to Home

Hot, dry, windy weather has brought early brush fires. Spotted this from my front yard as I headed off for Starbucks this morning. For most of the day, the winds pushed the smoke south-west.

By sunset, the winds had calmed, allowing the smoke to linger close to home. It's biting and unpleasant to breath the air. I expect my car will be painted in ash in the morning.

I'm not sure if anyone's lost a home or, worse yet, a life, but I'm praying not.
