I work across the street. Huge fireball followed by a plume of smoke several hundred feet high.
Then it started raining heavily. I'm sure my paintjob will be peeling off on the drive home.

I'm gonna call Lee Rohn, I feel a wheezing cough coming on 😀

Still lots of smoke but it isn't black smoke anymore.

It was a huge cloud.

This picture was taken from 3 miles north about 20 to 25 minutes after the fire started and shows the cloud starting to get smaller.

No need to call. She'll have an ad in the paper and a public meeting soon enough. In fact, she's been known to just go ahead and sue on your behalf without even talking to you. No worries.

Well, you're kinda SOL for a Lee Rohn party, then, aren't you?

Maybe fall down somewhere and help her win a lot of money from a local biz owner.
