Summer is heating up (literally)

We always know something is up at work when mass amounts of people start crowding around the windows to look out. This morning this is what we saw from work.

There had been a small fire in between Saratoga Springs and Eagle Mountain the day before....we thought it was under control and put out. Apparently the strong winds that blew in changed that scenario. The fire was up, raging, and getting scarier by the minute. By 9:30am they had issued mandatory evacuations for specific neighborhoods in Saratoga Springs. After a few days the whole thing was out - no homes damaged, just a lot of black mountains.  The start of the terrible air quality of the summer.
