Recycling Center Fire

So storm season has been relatively slow this year… but this has sparked a relatively new interest for me…fires!  A few days ago I noticed some smoke coming up above the trees, and after a quick google, figured out that there was a huge fire at Greensboro’s Recycling Center.  I have never seen so much smoke… most of it very toxic to breathe.
Anyways, I worked a couple of different positions and keyed in on the massive amount of smoke.
