Some smoke from a prescribed fire at the Piedmont Wildlife Refuge in Jones County may be visible to residents in surrounding counties on Friday, according to a news release from the Georgia Forestry Commission.
The fire, controlled by trained practitioners, is a safe way to reduce the risk of wildfires by reducing forest fire fuels and improving wildlife habitat, according to the release. The burn should be complete by 9 p.m.
