(Santa Rosa Beach) – The Florida Parks Service at Grayton Beach State Park will be conducting a 109 acre prescribed burn today, May 11, 2010, in an area located west of Highway 395 and south of Highway 98. 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 southeast, smoke will be visible in areas of South Walton and will drift to the north. 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.
