Where There's Smoke...

...there's a brush fire, in this case.

Yesterday morning after having breakfast at the Wigwam, I was walking to the Frontier Fun Center to play pinball (it being too hot to work in the middle of the day on Sekrit Home Improvement Project) when I saw a lot of smoke in the distance.

Brush Fire

What was intended to be a controlled burn to get rid of brush got out of control and spread, according to a local news source. It appears from other reports that no homes were damaged nor was anyone hurt, although it could have been a lot more trouble than that.

I got grumpy at someone who called a "controlled burn" an oxymoron and said "remember that the next time you start your car." I suspect he won't get it.
