From church (2/7)

I took this image from the parking lot of the Assembly of God church. Although there are trees, a power pole, and the old grade school is in the way, the size of the plume of smoke is quite noticeable. This picture was taken was taken about five hours before the last image was taken.

It doesn’t show up well, but the smoke was filling the air as I took the picture, but this was the clearest day we’d had in about a week. There was a very slight wind blowing to the north in town. There was no wind at the fire, thankfully, which is why the smoke is going straight up.

People were still having difficulties breathing, regardless of how healthy they were.
