Dismal Swamp fire can be seen from space (video)

A large wildfire in the Great Dismal Swamp that has burned 4,700 acres and sent smoke wafting into our area in recent days has also produced some breathtaking video.

ABC 7 originally posted the footage, which shows the fire can be seen from space. The time lapse images show a long smoke plume streaming out over the Atlantic ocean from the fire. It was shot by a NASA satellite.
