All the houses are in made of wood. It's almost impossible to stop a fire. All you can try is to prevent it to spread. The photos were made one hour after the beginning of the fire, 30 meters from our house, when the firemen arrived... This first hour was used to transport buckets of water from the wells and the lake to the fire.
