More on the fires in NC and GA

The smoke has cleared, at least temporarily, from Athens this morning and it smells less smoky, which means the plume is now going elsewhere.  Here are a couple of pictures of the Rough Ridge fire in northern GA which the NWS Peachtree City posted yesterday.  You can read more about efforts to fight these fires at the Atlanta Journal Constitution here along with information on where the photos came from.
