Day 29 - Smoke Day 2

Last night Firefighters got control of the wildfire and opened the roads up at midnight. We took a drive to the school to check things out. It is a good thing they closed school for today too because the smoke was still heavy in the air. This photo is right across the highway from the school. There were many spots still smoking like this and there was even another flare up a couple of miles south of this point. It flared up shortly after we left the area but officials quickly got it back under control. The fire crossed the highway so you could see the burned trees and grass on both sides of the road and even some spots in the highway median. The weather cooperated today, cool, not so windy and a little more humid. No reports of injuries or homes destroyed. This was a close call.
