"Here is a picture of what it now looks like across the road (about 150 meters from our house). It was too close for comfort. Cleaners will be in our home all week treating everything for smoke damage.
The fire is currently 100% contained but not out. It consumed over 14k acres, 511 homes, and two people in our heavily wooded, marginally populated area. It would have been much worse if the homes were closer together like last year's Waldo Canyon fire."
