Pinnacle, NC (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: A prescribed burn started Thursday, intended to clear brush and dead leaves from this state park, soon got out of control due to high winds and dry conditions that should have precluded the burn. By Saturday afternoon this is what the fire looked like from the Pinnacle exit of Highway 52. Smoke still blanketed the area by Saturday night.

Pam, thank you for your further remarks. In the last 5 weeks we've gotten only 13/16" of rain, most of that earlier rather than later. That's how the mountain got so dry in the first place. Rain is predicted for today, and it looks from the weather radar map like there is a chance, a system coming from the west, if it doesn't break up on its way over the mountains as so often happens.

Saw it on the local news this morning. Don't know about your area, but its been pretty dry here in the piedmont lately. You have to wonder, what were they thinking. Btw Your photos captured the event much better than the news video.

Well, Pam, it was started as a controlled burn, so evidently the authorities expected the overall effect to be beneficial. I think they're still pretending that; won't know how far off base they are until the public can get in there and see for ourselves.

Such a dramatic capture of an iconic view. I didn't hear this on the news. What a shame. Hope there was not a lot of damage.
