Poinsettia Fire – Carlsbad CA – X-T1 & 10-24mm
This fire was way to close for comfort, but now that the smoke has cleared, it’s amazing to see how near the fire came to so many buildings, and what a superb job our firefighters did in keeping those buildings from burning.
The fire raced West, up the canyons, through the tinder try brush – it hopped 4 lane roads with ease, and scorched some 600 acres.
What’s left is eerie, barren and dusty – with the screeching of distant smoke alarms from burned-out homes, echoing over the desolate landscape.
