From the AJC:
Residents in a rural southern Georgia area were told to evacuate Wednesday because their homes could be in a wildfire’s path soon, as firefighters in that state and Florida tried to contain blazes that have charred more than 200 square miles. Weather forecasters, meanwhile, said the two-state area could expect little immediate rainfall relief from Subtropical Storm Andrea because it was expected to remain offshore for the next day or two.
The storm’s winds, however, have been blowing smoke from wildfires across Georgia and Florida, though it didn’t appear they would hinder firefighting efforts, said Jim Harrell, a spokesman for Florida’s Division of Forestry.
“They’re doing their best right now to stay around the fire to keep it from, away from homes, schools, businesses, and those types of buildings,” Florida Agriculture Commissioner Charles Bronson said.
Who knew that Charles Bronson was Florida’s Ag Commish? Those fires better not tick him off or he’ll go all Death Wish on ’em.
