Tropical Storm restrains wildfires

Tropical Storm Barry provided a much-needed soaking to thousands of acres of burning swamp and timberland in northern Florida and southeastern Georgia.

The two large fires have charred more than 600,000 acres, or roughly 937 square miles, since a tree fell on a power line on April 16 and then a lightning strike on May 5 ignited the second blaze inside the Okefenokee Swamp.

Though Saturday's rainfall - as much as six inches (15.2 centimeters) in some spots - was a tremendous help, residents living near the fires should not be complacent, said Larry Morris with the joint information center in Waycross.

"It's still a live fire. Contained does not mean controlled, and it does not mean extinguished," Morris said.

Morris estimated that the fire, which crews have battled for more than a month, is now about 85 percent contained.

Barry weakened to a depression Saturday morning.

The United States' Head of Diplomacy, or Secretary of State, is an anachronistic, incompetent, meddling, intrusive, insolent and arrogant, rude individual, a brash, foul-mouthed upstart, a conceited, self-important guttersnipe and an insult to the international community, as fit for the job as a pedophile janitor in a grade school.
