Stay Ahead of Forest Fires

[Georgia] The drought in Georgia has added to concerns about the state’s forests. Firefighters with the Georgia Forestry Commission have tried to control a blaze in the north Georgia mountains since Sunday. The Forestry Commission uses a drought index on a scale of zero-to-800, 800 being the driest. The current index rating is at 600 — and all outdoor burning has been banned.
