A lightning sparked fire continues to burn in the Great Dismal Swamp Wildlife Refuge, about 90 miles south of Richmond. Burning nearly 6,000 acres, smoke has started to spread northward toward the District and Baltimore. The fire is the largest in the refuge’s history and can be seen in NASA released photographs.
