Smells Like Burning Plastic

There's a wildfire at Green Mountain! For my family who were in Denver for Grandma's memorial, we drove through that area on the way up to the mountains. It wasn't too far from where we pulled over to check on the rental car.

There are quite a few homes in the area of the wildfire; none have been damaged, but there are a lot of evacuations just in case.

Living in Colorado, we've had our share of forest fires. However, this one is so close that it makes it a bit difficult to breathe outside. That, and instead of smelling like a campfire, it stinks like burning plastic.

Hurray to the firefighters who already have it 85% contained. Hopefully, everything will go as best as possible.
