OH YIKES!!! Activity across the street caught my eye late today.....yup....a fire racing up along the creek. This is the time of year where the locals go out and burn the brush along the roadsides and fields. Why?? I never understood that....Obviously.....this one got away from the fellow....way away I might add!! We only have a volunteer fire department here....which is far enough away that we are penalized on our homeowners insurance. And given that there are no fire hydrants.....we get another dig on our insurance premiums. Fortunately there is a robust creek which provided the water for the firemen to put it out.
Their response time has never really been tested for our community in the 10 years we've lived here......this had a happy and swift end.
