Dusk run. Tried to capture the creeping fog, but this was the best I could do.

Thanks Csar. Pacific Northwest and New England get a lot of attention this time of the year (Autumn), but Midwest has some awesome scenes when you go look for it. Shout out to Canada, too.

Hoping to make a day trip to Wisconsin to close out the seasonal foliage and some Oktoberfest fare!

There's a forest fire happening on a hill right next to our town.
Don't worry, no populated area is threatened and I don't think it has spread in the past hours. The terrain there is also completely inaccessible from the ground, so firefighters could only fight it with helicopters. I think they're currently just letting it burn out on it's own.

Update: The fire is definitely spreading and local firefighters say that it will continue to burn for days, the however the good news is that it currently doesn't look like it will pose a threat to any populated areas.

Also I walked up a hill last night where there's a good view of the affected area:

Wow, that looks bad. And it's probably caused by irresponsible people..

Wildfire Update: There was a massive firefighter operation all over last week, with 8 helicopters (3 flown in from abroad), last weekend even two planes from Italy (Austria doesn't have firefighter planes) and around 250 firefighter on the ground, cutting firebreaks and taking care of the fire wherever accessible. Sometimes during last week, there wasn't even smoke visible, and the sudddenly the forest ground would light up in a spot somewhere. I learend that if it's dry, the fire can even spread underground, in tree root channels. The affected area has been inching closer to some farmhouses, but thanks to the massive efforts no house was in danger.
A little bit of rainfall in the past few days also brought relief, though firefighters will continue to scan for hot spots/embers at least for two weeks or so.

Dang, is that right? That's kinda terrifying if true. I thought fires would have a difficult time burning underground, specifically the tree roots,  because the lack of oxygen flow.

I also have a hard time imaging that, but that's what I heard. I assume there are enogh cavities left between the network of roots that fire finds a way. There's also a lot of rocky ground where the fire burnt. So maybe the roos create fissures while growing, and that's where there's oxygen?

Btw. today around noon the firefighters declared the wildfire to be over, however the area will be closely monitored with thermal cameras.

Two weeks ago I've talked to my sister, who is a firefighter and took part in the huge operation, that the process of fire spreading underground is actually much simpler: it isn't fire that spreads but simply heat, i.e. thermal energy. Which can be conducted underground, even without any oxygen, and wherever it meets the right conditions (flammable materials and oxygen) a fire lights up.
