Too Close for Comfort

This is what we saw today from our front yard when we got home from school. The fire was burning in the nearby canyon but they evacuated the 3rd phase of our development. They told us to have our things packed. If the wind were to shift slightly we would have to evacuate quickly.
Luckily the wind shifted the other way so we did not have to evacuate. About 50 acres burned in 2 hours. Thankfully no one got hurt in this fire and only part of one home was damaged.
The firemen told my husband that if this reservoir was not so close to the fire it would have gotten out of control and many homes would have been lost. We saw the CSI's walking around so we will find out if it was arson.
