06/09/08 56 W, 1 I - + 13 - 9 Fire From Space

The News & Observer has a nifty AP photo of the Hyde County wildfire as seen from space. The article reports that the fire is presently the largest such fire in the United States. What resources around here have been sent there? FireNews also posted some aerial photos, if you haven't seen them yet.

I heard Apex was sending a crew???

Do they need more help up there ? Who would I contact about sending crews? I’ve got a lot of guys willing to go.

I would suggest contacting your local fire marshall’s office.
