These pictures of last weekend’s Triangle Complex Fire were taken from the hill next to my house. Dozens of cars and hundreds of people came to this spot all weekend to have a look at the fire. I live right by the 57 freeway, on the west side. The fire was on the other side of the freeway.
At one point on Sunday morning, it got a little scary since when I saw fire for the first time on top of the hills on the other side of the freeway. Up to that point, I could only see smoke. My house is next to a hill full of trees and vegetation, and fire could ignite very quickly. The firefighters, along with 4 or 5 planes, worked like crazy all Sunday to control the fire and luckily no houses were harmed on the other side of the freeway.
