Incredible Force of Nature Consumes 10,000 Plus Acres of Grassland
A wildfire broke out north of Indiahoma in Southwest Oklahoma today, near the Wichita Mountains. It traveled north and consumed 10,000 acres by the time of this post and is still burning after dark. Luckily there have been no injuries or loss of homes as this is mostly ranch land. I was fortunate enough to be able to get a few pictures of one of nature’s awesome forces. In some shots you can see clouds that were spawned by the heat off this blaze. Being a 105 degree day, no telling how hot it was in the plume. It is thought the fire was sparked by a locomotive earlier in the day.
