Thankfully the fire was put out at nightfall, still quite a few km from our place and amazingly no homes were destroyed (although quite a few outbuildings and barns were). We have had an exceptionally dry, warm and windy winter so far, which creates a very high fire hazard. Hopefully we will have some snow to cut down the fire risk soon.
