Following a loud explosion, the fire was now racing toward the bay. If one didn’t know better one, would think the fire was deliberately dashing for the beach at the bay. The smoke had become the advance force for the fire. The trees were falling like battlefield soldiers who had decided to stand and fight against a superior foe.  The branches popped as the fire ignited them; next the sound turned to one of hissing as the sap in the trees began to boil. It was then the fire would jump from branch to branch followed by a pattern of catapulting from tree to tree.  Relentlessly, it was pursuing them, belching out smoke and fire like some bellowing, deranged dragon.
