Brush Fire Weather

When it is this dry, there is a fire-weather report on the nightly news along with the weather as we know it in the North.

View from our front door.
As we left the house this afternoon for a shopping trip this is what we saw.
We decided to try and locate the fire and, with the phone GPS, we drove into the Roseland area of Sebastian.

We were soon in a combination jungle/residential neighborhood.

This firetruck was stationed at the end of this dead-end road to protect the homes in case of cinders.

A lot of people were standing around watching as the fire raged on for hours. 

A small airplane circled the fire for hours, probably spotting for the ground fire crews.

It just wasn't getting any better.  You can just see the secondary fire that started about a mile upwind of the first...strange.
This gorgeous large ranch was awfully close to the fire.  No way to know if the owners were concerned or not.
This extensive cattle ranch was hidden back in Roseland.  It looks as if the ranch might be open for tourists.
