Marsh Wild Fire 3-14-07

Noticed smoke rising around 6:00 p.m. from the south end of the Great Marsh, on the Mackay Island National Wildlife Refuge, just to the west of our home. This fire apparently an unintentional burn took its direction from the 15+ mile an hour northerly winds and burned a swath up the eastern edge of the marsh - this picture was taken from our balcony in the front of our house. It is now 10:00 p.m. and the fire continues on its course of destruction. Fortunately no homes were ever in real danger. The local fire department and units from nearby Virginia Beach VA., monitored the burn's progress.
