TALLADEGA, Ala. – The Talladega Ranger District is planning to burn 425 acres today, 10 miles south of Talladega.

Forest Service Rd. 615 forms a portion of this burn boundary and should be traveled with caution.

During today’s burn, the public will notice Forest Service fire crews and equipment on Co. Rd. 234 and Forest Service Rd. 615. Smoke will be visible from Hwy. 21 and Co Rd. 7 and 234 and the Rendalia area.

The wind is expected to be out of the northwest and carry the smoke southeast towards Millerville. As temperatures cool later today, the smoke may begin to settle down in the local drainages. Some Settling may occur around the general area of the burn. Signs will be posted if needed.

For additional information, contact the Talladega office at 256-363-2909.
