Uploader comment: When lightning struck Osceola National Forestís Pinhook Swamp on April 5, 2012, it hit vegetation primed for wildfire. Long-term drought in the Southeast had left water levels in the swampy areas of northern Florida and southern Georgia at historically low levels, making the palmetto and gallberry in the area extremely flammable.
