I was driving around looking for features when I happened upon this brushfire in Hartland, VT. Spot news is not generally a thing you just stumble upon so I was lucky enough to find the fire, and even luckier to be able to photograph it in this kind of light before I was told to go back to the command center of the fire, as the area still wasn't safe. Fortunately, the fire only burned leaves and brush on a three acre wooded lot- no people or buildings were harmed.
