    I went outside my house this morning and smelled fire and smoke ... hopefully it is from a different fire ...

    It was pretty creepy. Smelling it outside and seeing it move through the area. It's just crazy how fast those fires can spread. Has anyone heard of a root cause? I hope we don't find out it was something that could have been easily prevented, like a cigarette or a campfire. That would just be frustrating...

    Same here, it was smokey as hell yesterday. Sucks when your house is old and surrounded by dead trees. Especially when it's the day you move in and there's a huge fire right across the street like a few years ago :(
