Last Sunday there was a man in Palm Bay Florida that was spotted tossing an object from the window of his vehicle in an area where one of many fires started. Since these fires were started over 52 miles, 11,853 acres of land has been burned. There has been 20 homes destroyed and 140 other structures damaged. As of now the fires are 40% contained leaving 6800 acres by Interstate 95, and 3700 acres around the US 1 area still burning and moving.
There are 300 firefighters at work bringing city, county and state firefighters together to battle this mighty blaze. There are 30 bulldozers dozing fire lanes in hopes to defeat the mighty fires.
When I went outside to play in my yard it was extremely foggy out. I snapped a few shots of the effects from the fires burning 2 hours away from where I live.
My heart goes out to all the family's affected by this mans horrible doings. I hope they teach him a lesson!!
