Go to Bing and search Holloway Fire for some great pictures of the active Fire. And if interested the site gives a look into the world of the Wildland Firefighter.

Update on the fire. The Holloway fire started 8/5/2012 by lightning it burned over 336,000 acres.more tragic news is coming from Oregon's largest wildfire in a century: The fire destroyed decades worth of restoration work that had helped threatened Lahontan cutthroat trout rebound. A firefighter who suffered minor burns on an Oregon range fire after crawling into her emergency shelter is a member of the Zuni Interagency Hotshots from New Mexico. I think being in one of those shelters must be outright terror beyond imagination.
