Fire in North Carolina makes 5-mile run

A fire in North Carolina last night jumped containment lines and "made a 5-mile run" according to the NC Division of Forest Resources. The fire which tripled in size yesterday has now burned 10,000 acres in Hyde and Washington counties, and has spread onto the Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge.

The map below shows the smoke plumes and heat detected by satellites.
