I was actually wondering about that, a picture from space.

Sometimes I wish I wasn't so oblivious. I've spent quite some time over the last few days wondering if there was a fire on my block, and where the trucks were, only for it to finally click.

It's been burning for the last 4 days. Everyone that I know has been aware of it and has been complaining about for some time now. It's really starting to irritate me at this point because I'm tired of not being able to go outside and breathe and now it's starting to make its way inside many places.

Perhaps it was lightening but it's likely that those stupid hunters who burn the marsh to root out animals. I have heard how hunters are all for preserving wildlife habitat, and yet every year, several times a year these chuckle heads are out burning marsh making people sick and destroying vital natural hurricane protection. Frankly, I'm sick of it and wish the Wildlife and Fisheries would crack down on these people big time.

Where is the fire, exactly? Does anybody know? After reading this thread I drove out to I-10/510 in the East and while the smoke was a little thicker around there, it wasn't overpowering or anything. I'm guessing it's somewhere off the northeast side of that interchange, but really couldn't tell.

Same here! I woke up on Monday morning and ran around my house looking for the fire. I never thought the smell would get to Kenner and looking at it now, I don't know why I thought it couldn't.

I first saw it Saturday morning and there were large billows of dark smoke. From the highrise it appeared to be somewhere between Read and Bullard, but as I approached Crowder and Read it appeared to be close to Michoud. You could definitely tell that something big was burning though.
