Wild fires infront of our place in mid september

An extremely dry summer.  This one jumped the river below and came within 200m of our house.  We were saved by the fact that a municipal plant nursery is right in front of us and they have water tankers that they dispatch throughout the city.  The firemen were on the other side.
