FORT BENNING, GA -  A wildfire is burning in the impact area near Sand Hill in the Malone Complex.  The fire is burning behind Malone 2 and Malone 3, east of Wildcat Road and north of 2nd Armored Division Road.

The fire is in an area that cannot be accessed by firefighters.  It is burning within existing firebreaks and has been fully contained since it started burning Thursday.  

Because it is burning in an area with stream bottoms and wetlands, the fire is producing smoke.

No injuries or structural damage have been reported. 

The fire is being closely monitored by Fort Benning forestry personnel.

No structures are threatened by the fire.
