If the fire doesn't get you the smoke may. A wildfire unchecked could go on for weeks and months. Get downwind of that and it becomes a real threat for some folks pretty quick and seemingly healthy folks as the exposure continues.
And then there is the wildlife thing.....those animals that pilgrims think they are going to live off the land......like the turkey in Christmas Story, they could be "gone.....all gone!!".
