Thanks to Rob Frolic for passing along the pictures from Facebook. If you have more pictures, please send them along and I’ll post them with credit.

The fire danger is Extreme for our area and we have had months of drought now. Not a big surprise to see fires start, and grow, quickly.
Stay safe out there. If you have any more information please send it along to Alberniweather at gmail.com , or @alberniweather on Twitter or leave a comment.
