During the Winter of 2002-2003, an oil spill occurred in the Sabine National Wildlife Refuge.  After the initial cleanup (pictures 1 through 5), it was decided that the best way to handle the residual oil was to burn it off.  Crews then set several small starter fires (pictures 6 through 8).  Pictures 9 through 19 show the fire at various stages of growth, while picture 20 was taken during the fire's final moments.  The aftermath of the fire can clearly be seen in the final four photos.  The pictures are courtesy of the Sabine National Wildlife Refuge.
