Wildfire - the first of our season

HEA had a powerline go down yesterday, and sparked this wildfire. The first of the season near Homer. It started about mile 17 on East End Road and has grown to over 100 acres. The fire teams got it knocked down pretty well last night, but it's warm and sunny today. This afternoon when the day breeze got going, it blew back up. Here is a picture of it from town, and then another from the Spider House. We're at mile 10 but the wind is currently pushing it toward the head of the bay which is away from us.
