Honey Prairie Complex Fires still burning

obtained from on September 26, 2011

I was reminded last week during my wonderings on the internet last week that the Honey Prairie Complex Fires that started a lightening strike on April 28 continue to burn. As I write this, it is almost five months later and the fire has burned about 308,780 acres as of September 15, 2011, primarily in the Okefenokee National Wildlfire Refuge. It is 76% contained as I write this. Smoke from these fires have been noticeable recently in the region.
