The winds picked up and the fire built strength. Over night it fed on 20,000 acres and over a hundred homes. Days later, it still isn't satisfied and continues to engulf everything in it path.
Now up to 52,000 acres and fighting off 1,200 fire fighters, the future is undetermined. The only fact is that this is just the beginning of the end.
P.S. Those are not clouds. Everything from the haze in the foreground to the huge stacks of clouds are smoke from the fire.
