Much too close! Drifting soot and embers also. Bet ETI has employees out with hoses washing down the trailers and products in the back storage area today. Oh my!

Drove pass on the freeway at 3:03pm just as it was starting and the black smoke drifting over the freeway from the north east wind dropped the visibility down to probably 150ft and i could barely make out the Escape sign from the slow lane. Approaching from the east after visiting my mother in law we did wonder if it was the Escape factory but as we got nearer you could see that the main smoke plume was as fair bit behind and to the east of it.
