(Nearly) Wordless Wednesday: Fire Season Continues

This fire was the closest to our house I've seen--about 1 mile west and 1 mile south.
It's hard to see, but helicopters dipped buckets into the aquaduct to gather water to put out the fire.  What looks like smoke in the photo is actually water spraying from the breeze of the helicopter.

Thanks for a fantastic fire crew, who had the fire out quickly, and contained it to only 10 acres.
