Pagami Creek Fire jumps the line

I will admit, I'm fascinated with these daily satellite shots. When it's clear you can see everything and I feel like a spy. You can see the maples still red on the ridges near Lake Superior and you can clearly see smoke rising from the Pagami Creek Fire. The high winds have caused the fire to jump the fire lines in certain areas. They are fighting it hard. You can clearly see the burn area on the shot. That is alot of landscape that burned. If you know your lakes you can see the old Hamm Lake fire burn on the shot just above Gunflint Lake also. It's brown in color. That was over three years ago I believe.
