There are some serious forest fires going on in Quebec right now. There is actually a cloud of smoke over the Island of Montreal. I smelled it from my house. I got [livejournal.com profile] swestrup and we went outside to check it out. Sure 'nuf, lots of wood smoke smell and we could see a bit of haziness. We wandered a bit, but couldn't tell where it was coming from. I called 911 and they had a message about the smoke. The first thing the operator asked me when I said that I was smelling smoke was, "Can you see flames?" She told me that they are getting calls from all over the island. She got my coordinates and will let the fire department know, so they can drive by and check that it isn't an actual local fire.
