Wildfire--the Duckett Fire in Custer & Fremont Counties, Colorado

This wildfire has burned about 1,500 acres about an hour west of where I live. I drove up that way this afternoon to check on some nesting birds and on some BLM areas that get a lot of destructive off-road motorized activity. I saw the fire and went up a rugged county road to get a few photos of illegal off-road motorized abuse which put me in a great spot to get some photos and video of this wildfire. Both of these pics show trees 'torching'. More to come. SeEtta
