Forest fires smoke smothers Wilson
Thursday, June 12, 2008
Wilson -- The low-hanging haze and the acrid smell of smoke that has permeated Wilson is the result of wildfires burning nearly 100 miles away. A shift in wind brought smoke from a fire in the Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge, east of Washington in northeastern North Carolina, over Wilson County and surrounding areas Wednesday afternoon and produced a smoke advisory for much of eastern North Carolina Thursday morning. The fire in the refuge, about 40 miles from the Atlantic coast, began with a lightning strike June 1. It had burned across more than 40,000 acres, or about 63 square miles, as of Wednesday evening.
