05/11/11 104 W, 1 I - + 4 - 6 Smoke From Dare Wildire Reaches Raleigh

The News & Observer notes this morning that the smoke from a 21,000-acre wildfire in Dare County has reached Raleigh. Of course, anyone who was outside yesterday morning has smelled the thing. Like a cross between burning wood and burning plastic. And with sniffers reporting smells all around Raleigh and Wake County via Facebook. Betcha more than a few odor investigations are being run by departments between here and the coast! The Associated Press wrote the story, the Virginian-Pilot published the below photo by Bill Tiernan, that appears on the Observer's web site.
