Friday afternoon, a spokesperson from the mayor’s office shared that crews initially responded to reports of multiple brush fires Thursday night around 8:13 p.m., but determined it was one fire seen from multiple areas.
“Forestry plans to implement some fire lines while still utilizing the natural fire breaks of the trails,” Anderson County EMA Director Brice Kidwell said. “They do plan on back-burning at some point today, if the weather permits, so there could be an uptick in smoke. We ask that residents please keep in mind that we may receive rain but nothing significant enough that would allow them to burn any outdoor debris.”
