We are smelling smoke in Currituck Co. Is this supposed to last long? Hope not. Being outdoors is no fun is you can't breathe.

Come on Dare county. You can try to fix the impossible condition (Beach nourishmrnt), but you can't stop a deadly smoke producer. This smoke, here in Stumpy Point is killing us. Put the fire out!!!!

Sitting on my patio and a warm breeze pushing through the trees. Sirens going off left and right Then the thick smell of burning wood. All of Goldsboro under a thick blanket of clouded smoke.

There has been a company who has donated their time and equipment to help in the cutting of fire breaks in the affected areas. They have a machine that can cut the underbrush and leave it laying flat so that the fire cannot burn. The company is located in Brunswick, Georgia and is called Kut Kwick, Inc. I cannot believe that not a single paper has mentioned their charitable involvement.
For more information you can see their website:
