When I saw your first pictures, the fire looked dangerous and threatening.
It seems to have turned out to be more of a brush fire than a forest fire.
It’s hard to tell from over here, but there doesn’t seem to have been too much fire-fighting going on – no water bombers or fire trucks that I can see. Did they just let it burn itself out in a “controlled” burn?
How were the hydro poles and fence posts saved from burning? It came mighty close to the building in Achintee in the June 6th picture.
The fire has left quite a scar on the landscape. An aftermath can sometimes bring radical soil erosion.
But, we need to recognize that Mother Nature does include brush and forest fires in her bag of tricks.
Thanks for following it for us.
Ken
