"This wheel's on fire"

Absent water, fire takes center stage in the swamp.

Add in some wind and suddenly it has wheels, a wall of flames and fumes are on the move, leaving in its wake charred earth and a lot of ash.

That’s where the wildland firefighters step in to contain it …

Not that they don’t mind a little back up in the form of a big rain!
