Where there's smoke there's fire?

Hi again. A lot of smoke here right now. There is a forest fire about 50 km North of us and the smoke is drifting. As it is at the moment it's not very dangerous smoke since it is only wood and stuff that burns. No houses are burnt yet, but there are some towns and villages in the area that are evacuated. At the moment one dead and one badly burnt. It is very hot and dry in the area and they have lost control over the fire so this can be very bad. And there is another, smaller, forest fire a couple of miles to the West of the big fire so it doesn't look very good for the people in the area. Hopefully we'll get some rain, but this is the worst forest fire in Sweden in modern times. And some smoke. I was strange to go downtown and I heard that the shopping area West of town was best avoided, you couldn't breath there. And a pic of the church tower.

  1. Fire ? why ? Do you have a hot and dry summer ?

    1. Yup! It was very hot and dry. And since Sweden don't have any fire-fighting planes we had to get help. From France and Italy. And with the help from them the fire is now under control. But it is not out yet. So a THANK YOU for those planes.
