A fire burned in the northwest area. The fire burned strong because it was so dry this year. When there is little rain and the wind is strong, the fires burn with an amazing intensity. They also burn fast, and move fast. That makes them very dangerous. This year the fire was the worst in twenty years. It burned everything in its path. Many people had to leave their homes. The did not know when they could go back, but they all got back home within a week of leaving. It is over now.
