Wildfires – Florida, USA

Evacuations are in place for residents in Charlton County, Georgia due to the West Mims Fire and the smoke from the fire has also moved its way over Northeast Florida.

The latest update from the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge says the West Mims Fire is currently 116,571 acres and 12% contained. A Red Flag Warning has been issued for the fire today, due to the fact it grew over 3,000 acres on Friday as dry, windy conditions pushed the fire over containment lines.
