Fire, fire!

There is a 100 acre brush fire just about a mile or so from our apartment, as the crow flies.  Because of it, the air quality was awful earlier this week.  Monday morning, it was so smoky around our apartment that it looked like a thick fog, and we were choking and coughing just walking our dog in the morning!

My husband says it started Friday night, and we first noticed it on Saturday morning when driving out to view the house. We could see it behind a subdivision off of 27 (not our subdivision, thankfully):

So my husband thought it would be a fun idea (!) to drive out and see if we could find the source of the fire.   He thought it was a controlled burn, and so we drove up Avalon and turned down some side road.  We got right out to where the fire was, though, and there was a fire truck in the road, so I, being a pudding-heart, turned the car around and drove away.  But not before my husband got a few photos:

Ah, the joys of living in Florida.  Cough, cough.
