SYLACAUGA, Ala. – The Talladega Ranger District is planning to burn 611 acres today, 8 miles east of Sylacauga in the Hollins Wildlife Management Area (WMA).

Forest Service Roads 684, 689 and 689A form portions of this burn’s boundary and should be traveled with caution. Smoke may be visible on Co. Rd. 4 and 7 and Hwy. 148.

The wind is expected to be out of the West and carry the smoke to the east towards Millerville. As temperatures cool later today, the smoke may begin to settle down Hatchet Creek towards Goodwater and Millerville. Some settling may also occur around the general area of the burn in the WMA. Signs will be posted if needed.

If encountering smoke on roadways, please slow down, turn on your low-beam headlights and use caution when approaching burning operations and smoke.

If you have any questions, please contact the Talladega office at 256-362-2909.
