Wildfire crews continue to battle Big Cypress brush fire

Stephen Evaristo, a firefighter from North Carolina, stands watch for spot fires during a prescribed burn in the Big Cypress Preserve on May 6, 2011. The brush fire, which has spread to more than 25,330 acres, has grown partially as a result of prescribed burns meant to create a containment area so the fire will run out of fuel. Greg Kahn/Staff
