Prescribed Burn in South Walton February 10

February 10, 2010

The Florida Division of Forestry (DOF) will be conducting a 180 acre prescribed burn today, February 10, 2010, at the intersection of US Highway 98 East and County Highway 283 (Southeast corner).  The burn will take place today between 8:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.

Due to the prevailing wind direction out of the northeast, smoke will be visible in areas of South Walton and will drift in a southerly direction.   As always, the South Walton Fire District is monitoring the conditions. If you encounter smoke on any roads, you are encouraged to please slow down and use caution.

It is anticipated that the smoke will dissipate once the burns have been completed

The Division of Forestry may be contacted at 850-547-7083 with any questions you may have.
