Last night when we were driving home from visiting a set we saw in the distance a bright orange light in the night sky. It seemed far away but yet very close. As we got closer we realized that the orange light was a fire and we were headed right for it. The fire was directly next to the freeway on our drive home. (the picture above is what it looked like when we were driving up to it and the picture below was up next to it, taken from my camera phone)
We pulled over to take some pictures. I couldn't believe how close we were to a real fire. We could feel the heat. We were so surprised they didn't close the freeway down since it as literally touching the cement wall that separated us from the fire. After a few pictures we took off and learned later that minutes after we left they closed the freeway down for hours. I was so happy we made it threw. It was such an experience.
