What’s that in barns?

In other news, the “biggest” of three fires in Alaska has burned “about 0.06 square mile,” according to the Associated Press (quoting Alaska Division of Forestry spokesperson Sam Harrel). The two smaller fires have burned one and five acres, respectively.

For the numerically challenged, 0.06 of a square mile = 38.4 acres.

PS: A “barn” is a unit of area equal to 10−28m2. You’re welcome.
