Close-up

The County Line Fire, a large fire in Pinhook Swamp, in northern Florida, is generating a lot of smoke along the Georgia county line and has caused Smoke Advisories to be posted from Hamilton County to Jacksonville, Florida. The swamp fire has burned about 7,000 acres, and the area affected runs along the Columbia and Baker County line.

On April 9, 2012, the National Weather Service (NWS) issued a Dense Smoke Advisory for Columbia, Baker, Union, Bradford, and Alachua Counties. The NWS advisory stated, “The county line wildfire in northern Columbia County will continue to send dense smoke downwind of the fire today. Dense smoke will spread south and east from northern Columbia and Baker counties as far south as Alachua County.” Here, the smoke can be best observed in the close-up, fanning out to the south and also blowing in a thinner, more elongated plume towards the southwest.
