Fort Benning wild fires secured, may cause excess smoke

FORT BENNING, GA (WTVM) -

Military training exercises are said to be the cause of four wild fires that broke out on Fort Benning today, Nov. 14, according to officials at the Maneuver Center of Excellence (MCoE). The fires have been secured and contained, but may cause community members to notice extra smoke.

Two of the wild fires are burning in the A-20 impact area down range of Burroughs and Patton Ranges. They will continue to burn in the impact area until burned out or rained out. As a result, smoke may be noticed on Main Post along Dixie Road and First Division Road.

Two additional wild fires are burning at the Malone Complex. Officials do not anticipation any smoke concerns from these wild fires.

There are also six unrelated controlled burns taking place on private land in Harris, Stewart and Marion counties. They may also cause smoke in the area, but are not a result of Fort Benning activities.

For more information, visit Fort Benning's Smoke and Sound Website.

Individuals who want to be notified of firing on ranges and prescribed burning may be added to the notification list by emailing usarmy.benning.imcom.mbx.web@mail.mil.
