This Saturday while driving to Cornelia we spotted this control burn being conducted by the Forest Service in the national forest that surrounds Toccoa. I have never been this close to a forest fire (controlled or otherwise) so I decided to take a couple of photos. The one below was taken a few yards off the highway on the fringe edges of the “burn.” Just the undergrowth was being burned away because in dry months this is what can really fuel forest fires.
