The firefighters actually did a controlled "backburn" along the fence you see here before the rest of the fire actually reached it, in order to essentially starve the fire to death. It did not cross the path or the ridge, and was 100% contained 2.5 hours after the department received the call. Not too bad for a 50-150 acre fire (we still don't know).

It smelled for days afterward, but it will be really good for the grass come next spring.

Thats all for now!
