Day 253 – Fire Season Isn’t Over

Fire at 1:30 p.m.

I thought we were done with fire season for the year.  The temperatures have gotten cooler, there haven’t been any lightning storms . . . but I guess I was wrong.  This fire developed very quickly today.  At 11:00 this morning, there was no sign of a fire anywhere.  By 1:00, it looked like the panorama photo – the fire was at 150 acres.  By 6:30 tonight, the second photo shows the fire at 1500 acres.  It’s still dry here and with the winds preceding a cold front fanning it, it’s been growing rapidly.  Hopefully they will be able to get control of it quickly.

  1. Fire so destructive, but in some case for veld management, so necessary… Here they set fire to the grass just for fun… then the fire department and all the farmers fight to put it out again…

I'd love to hear from you
