We live close...far too close for comfort. I must send a big thank you to all those working the fire. They are hitting it hard. Thankfully there is no wind up here and the weather forecast is showers (I'd really like to skip the lightning part) It must be too dark for the air crews to continue, my house is no longer shaking from the planes and choppers overhead

It looks pretty smoky there in Joe Rich, I think the cooler temperatures are causing a smoke inversion in that area. Keep the windows closed tonight!

I'd rather the fire be put out.

It's not really that smokey here. Not enough to overpower my cigar smoke, anyway. :D (I live a few minutes down the road, FWIW)

It's a small event - always nerve wracking for those who live close, though. The fire crews, as always, have earned their keep thus far. Now it's up to mother nature to not thwart their efforts, for the night.

Looks like it's contained. Luckily the weather helped, and (despite what a fear mongerer said earlier) the fire never got big to begin with.
