SYLACAUGA, Ala. – The Talladega National Forest Talladega Ranger District is planning to burn 302 acres today, 12 miles southeast of Talladega and 12 miles northeast of Sylacauga.

Forest Service Rd. 662B and 600-1 form portions of the burn boundary, and should be traveled with caution.  Smoke will be visible from Hwy. 21, Hwy. 148, Sylacauga and Talladega.

The wind is expected to be out of the east and carry smoke to the west towards Sycamore and Childersburg. As Temperatures cool later today,, smoke may begin to settle. Signs will be posted if needed. If encountering smoke, please slow down, turn on your low-beam lights and use caution when encountering burning operations.

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 National Forest Fire Dispatch at (334) 241-8105.
