Brush Fire in Arizona

This brush fire closed the freeway near Sunset Point between Flagstaff and Phoenix the night before our planned trip a a couple of weekends ago.  They opened the freeway late that night.  These pictures are from mid-morning the next day.

Smoke (and look for the helicopter hauling a bucket):

The not-burned area meets the burned area:

The burn zone:

And here's some actual flame, not very threatening, but still...it was really close.  I can't imagine how scared those people must have been last year in California, driving through the raging heart of some of those wildfires, walls of flame on every side, like some Hollywood movie.
