So yesterday evening, long after we were done digging for the day a fire broke out near the site. Luckily, the site was, for the most part, untouched by the flames. The ash almost completely surrounds the site and we are lucky that damage wasn't at all extensive. Here are some pictures of the fire, before and after it reached the site. This morning, as to poor air conditions, we only went out for about an two or three hours. Some will go out later this afternoon. I will take another picture like the second one below after the fire.
Smoke from the kibbutz.
The fire not quite at the site yet. (The site is located at the small darker spot to the left of the large tree.)
