Clear Creek Fire Panorama

The Clear Creek Fire near Marion, NC burned over 3100 acres. The Forest Service named arson as the probable cause. I drive by this area often and drove down to record the damage. Shot from the far side of Lake Tahoma. Artificial lights of an emergency vehicle at left, bluish command center klieg lights and greenish street lights add to the intensity of the scene.
