Mother Nature put out the fire on Lake Okeechobee
May 22, 2008 7:01pm CST
We had some pretty heavy rain earlier and I didn't see any signs of smoke on my way home from work but the local news has confirmed that the fires on the lake bed are now 100% contained. Because it continued to rain after the major system passed over the hope is that there are not hot spots that will flare up over night. Finally, after three weeks, the fire and smoke are gone!!
