Prescribed burn continuing at Tuskegee National Forest | Events
The Tuskegee National Forest is planning to burn approx. 1140 acres today on Forest Service roads 906, 908, 937, 938, CR 26 Hwy 29 and Hwy 186. During today’s burn, the public will notice Forest Service fire crews and equipment. Smoke may also be visible on Highway 29 and Highway 186. If encountering smoke on roadways, please slow down, turn on your low-beam headlights and use caution.
The wind is expected to be out of the Southeast and carry the smoke to the northwest towards the interior of the forest. As the temperatures cool later today, some settling may occur around the general area of the burn.
Remember, a prescribed burn is a controlled fire ignited by professionally trained and experienced Forest Service personnel. A prescribed burn is carefully planned to improve the health of your national forest. If you have any questions, please contact the Talladega Fire Dispatch at 256-362-7000 or Tuskegee National Forest at 334-727-2652.
