Fire is no joke.  I never really experienced fires like that until I moved south, and even then, they're not as vicious or wide spreading as out west.

But I was amazed at how far the smoke (or at least the smell) traveled.  I lived on the north coast of SC and when there were fires in Georgia, we could smell it very clearly.

there is a ban on fireworks this year...as far as we know the fire was caused by a track-hoe...either a spark or hot machinery etc..
