Right before I left for work I was in my driveway and noticed a few plumes of yellowish smoke in the air being blown by the wind, my eyes followed the smoke down to the horizon where I realized it was coming from a wooded area behind some houses just one street over. I went in and got my wife and we went to the very rear of our yard when there was suddenly an explosion, I called 911 on my cell phone and a a guy from down the street who was out in the street behind my house said he had just called the fire department. Just then there was another explosion and you could hear the crackle of flames which were just becoming visible through the trees,it appears a structure of some type was on fire back there but I couldn't make out exactly where, I just know it was behind the houses that were on the street behind my house. The cops soon showed up and blocked off the area and I had to leave for work, I did notice that the whole neighborhood smelled like "barbecue" -seriously, it probably had something to do with trees burning. My wife called me while I was on the way to work and said the fire department had shown up apparently had the fire under control. I'm keeping an eye on the local news websites to see if they report what it was.
