The Roadrunner’s brave photographer, Eston Conley, was on the scene of the fire today taking some pictures, but as the fire got closer and the evacuation orders came, he promptly left for a safe area. 

Be like Eston and obey the authorities, because some things are more important than a story, a photo, or even a house.
