Was returning from school female age 15 and decided to treck through the mountains that day. Can only say so many word on this site. In short I was standing below them at the base of the mountain. Out of no where I heard a loud wind that sounded like a jet and looked up and say a ball of fire coming down the ravine as fast as a jet. Then it exploded on fire at least a 100 ft from the ravine. Even where I was standing you couldn't out runt this thing. I heard screams I thought what people up there? Fire appeared out of no where around me so I ran heading home to call the Fire Dept. When I got home at the base if the mountain I found they already knew. That's short and to point. Heard there was a investigation. I saw it. Happened in a matter of a couple of seconds one fire then explosion. They had no chance to escape that flash of fire that came. It's a miracle their alive maybe me too who was below them.
