Everglades aflame

Tuesday, May 20, 2008

Almost 40,000 acres of the Everglades National Park are on fire.

The fire has sent a haze of smoke over parts of South Florida, including Miami. Fire crews are working to protect structures in the park and also the Cape Sable seaside sparrow, a federally protected species whose only habitat is in the Everglades.
