Controlled burn for Tuskegee National Forest Friday

Posted: Updated:
TUSKEGEE, AL (WSFA) -

Approximately 700 acres are being burned Friday, as apart of a controlled burn for Tuskegee National Forest.

Officials say the burn will be in the area of Forest Service roads 915 and County Road 54. Smoke may be visible to the public on Highway 29, Highway 186 and I-85.

The public is being asked to slow down, use caution and turn on the low beam headlights if encountering smoke on the roadway.

As temperatures fall later in the day, the wind conditions may carry the smoke to the East towards the Choctafaula Creek Bottoms along Highway 29. Some settling may also occur around the general area of the burn.
