The forest fire

Last Saturday I made a late trip to try to see something of the huge forest fire that is ramping the area between Karbenning and Ramnäs. Did not see much more then the smoke on the sky at a distance. Suddenly I saw some strange green and red lights out on a meadow. Helicopters filling their water baskets in a nearby lake. On my way home I passed Gammelby and Ängelsberg and everything seemed to be peaceful and quiet. The other day I made a morning trip to the area and there where police and fire vehicles everywhere. All roads near the area where closed and the small villages I passed before where evacuated. Incredible what a huge area that are devasted by the fire.
