Check Out this video of American Fire

The American Fire started on August 10th and as of this morning’s report is almost 15,000 acres in size. The American fire is only 54% contained and has a tentative containment date of September 1.

This video was forwarded to me by the Fire Safe Council of Nevada County. Towards the end is time lapse video of how the fire grows. Amazing!  Produced by Jason Phipps and Kellen Walker.  American Fire video.
