I just called the National Weather Service on the secret telephone number I was given upon completing the Weather Spotter training. They are going to call the Forest Service. I also alerted my local 911.
The sky is filled with smoke to the point that I find it an irritant to comfortable breathing.
Listening in on my neighbor’s scanner we hear: there is “an unattended controlled fire” in Eastbrook. They also called it an ”out of control brush fire.”
What the heck is “an unattended controlled fire”?
Anyway. Seems I may have saved the day.
