Fire & Smoke

By liparig
Grass fire on the highway 5 in California. The grass and surrounding trees are on fire at an exit on the highway near the city of Oroville in California. Taken while driving as the police did not want any to stop and rightly so. So I snapped a few blind pics while driving by.

Amazing the work of the brave and selfless firefirghters, they have thier hands full in California which has forest fires practically every day during the summer.

You did well despite the conditions. A sight we see too often during summer in my part of the world too.

I sopose seeing this on tv does not quite give the sense of what it looks like on the ground, Its very daunting task to fight that heading your way
