Forest fires are the topic of this story:
The Jolly Mountain area is 30 miles to the northwest.
Norse Peak (45 mi.) is the name of the fire about 40 miles west of us.

The Jolly Mountain area looks like this:Jolly is left of center.
Note much of the area is covered by bare rock and short grass/forbs. So the acres burned is a notion of some speculation.
