Not to be a party pooper but I have worked with a FLIR camera before.
1. It would not register actual temperature 1/4 mile away. Unless it is a VERY expensive piece of instrumentation.
The special talents of thermal imaging are being able to produce a clear image in total darkness, long operation range, round-the-clock detection and the ability to do the job in foul weather when there is no ambient light. The range of a FLIR Systems thermal camera can be far greater than that of a conventional daylight camera; up to 25kms if needs be.
