Smoke permeated the air late Tuesday in Black Forest as the sound of sirens broke through the quiet night.
It made for an unsettling couple of hours for some Black Forest residents, understandably on edge so soon after the devastating Black Forest Fire.

One man was inside when the fire started; he was able to get out safely and sustained no injuries.
