Started by lightning on April 30, the Honey Prairie Fire in southeastern Georgia, has burned over 291,000 acres in the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge. At this time, the refuge is closed and visitor activities have been suspended. Fire crews continue to control reburns and mop up hotspots. In these Landsat images, vegetation is green, and dark red represents the burned area.
