    I got to see this thing up close and personal! Good Gawd, it's amazing what fire does when it's on a tear!!!!!! We were a mile or two away still and couldn't wait to get the hell outta there. We had to de energize a line so we didn't stay long. It went from a brush fire to 300 acres and from 300 acres to over 4000 in less than a few hours. It's a amazing to see it run up the face of the mountain in the tree tops. It'll go what seems like 400-500 yards in less than a blink of an eye.
