This is an artist's representation of the area surrounding my house right now (and that artist happens to me be ;D)

I can't see any flames, but there's a fair ammount of smoke. The fire is probably over a kilometer away, but that still isn't nearly far enough. For the past few hours a helicopter has been dropping water but it's now dark out so they can't fly.

The fire was started by lightning hitting a tree (my dad actually saw it!) I'm just hoping they get it out soon.
