Wildfires Are Raging Through Georgia And Are Devastating Parts Of The State

Dozens of wildfires across northern Georgia have our residents praying to anything and everything for any amount of rain. It was one month ago that the fires began, and they’ve spread nonstop ever since, exacerbated by our state’s drought. With more than 20,000 acres of land already burned, the ongoing wildfires that are still active are making this one of the worst devastations our state has seen in quite some time.

Unfortunately we’re hearing that possibly at the beginning of this weekend our wildfire-ridden areas could be hit with a potentially problematic cold front. High winds are expected to hit the northern regions of our state on Friday, causing our Georgia Forestry Commission to grow more and more concerned. Have you seen the smoke that’s now covering Georgia? Is it affecting where you live?
