Sam's Point Fire, Ellenville (Ulster County, NY)
Direct link to video from Recordonline (Middletown NY)
The Sam's Point fire started on April 23rd and has burned approximately 2,000 acres to date. Rainfall has helped, but drier conditions are expected to return later Wednesday into Thursday. See this April 26th article from the Recordonline (photo gallery and video) for more information. I got the map that I embedded above, thanks to a special report from the Recordonline (with some of the same information that I linked to earlier).
