The Pine Gulch hearth burning north of Grand Junction on Thursday grew to 122,550 acres or 191 sq. miles, as crews handled dry lightning and gusty winds, as much as 44 mph, from passing thunderstorms that introduced little or no rain. Pilot and photographer John Wark captured these pictures of the wildfire from the air on Thursday.
