Bayou Sauvage Marsh Fire

Apparently lightening started a fire in an island in the Bayou Sauvage NWLR this week and NOLA has been overwhelmed with the smoke from the fire. Here is a time lapse today provided by a local TV channel.

Thank you for posting that. Now I "see"(?) what my friends in NOLA are contending with ... heard about it - but nice to be a bit more connected. Don't know why they can't just do an air-drop and put it out ... not like there isn't enough water around. Although I've been told that a marsh fire burns - underground as well. R.P.
