Wildfire season

It's wildfire season in the West, including Oregon.  There are lots of photos out there but I thought this one was hauntingly beautiful.  Imagine what it looks like at night... it must be so scary.

I grew up on a farm in Eastern Montana and I remember some fires lighting up the sky at night even though they were quite far away.  You could see smoke from both fires in the daytime and at night a huge piece of the sky was red from the larger further away fire and in the other direction, you could see the yellow flames of the fire...I remember being afraid, especially of that ominous red sky.
