SYLACAUGA, Ala. – The Talladega Ranger District is planning to burn 500 acres today, 16 miles south of Talladega and 4 miles east of Sylacauga.

The wind is expected to carry smoke north towards Talladega. As temperatures cool later today, the smoke may begin to settle down Tallaseehatchee Creek towards Lake Howard and Oldfield Rd. Settling may also occur on Lower Sycamore Rd. Signs will be posted if needed.

If encountering smoke, please slow down, turn on your low-beam lights and use caution when encountering burning operations.

If you have any questions, please contact the the Talladega Ranger District at 256-362-2909.
