I was shocked when I looked out this morning and saw a major fire, with billowing black smoke in the distance.
Turns out that it was some abandoned/discarded PVC pipe at Graeme Hall that was burning. Residences and schools had to be evacuated from that area.
Fortunately, the wind was blowing the smoke in a south westerly direction so it did not bother me.
I think that we would have had about three fatalities in the last month due to fire.
