Yet Another Forest Fire

While we were in Chicago, there was a wildfire right over by the Jordanelle Reservoir.  This is about 3 miles from our house.  Fortunately the winds were blowing back towards the water and highway 40 makes for a great fire break.
The fire fighters were awesome, on the ground and in the air.
This was shot as the fire got to the reservoir.
This was shot the next morning.  It burned a large chunk of land, but they kept it away from all the buildings.  It came very close to some condos and the water processing plant.
No harm, no foul, but it reminds you of how big a risk fire is around here.  I think of fire as Utah's answer to hurricanes.
