Reports of Wildfire in Piedmont
There were several reports of a wildfire at Teal Trail and Centry Road in Piedmont earlier today. As we previously mentioned, a Fire Danger Advisory for all 67 Alabama counties has been issued by the state’s forestry commission.
According to the advisory, current drought conditions and high temperatures have combined to create a high probability of fuel ignition along with an atmosphere favorable for wildfires. Although the state is not under a burn restriction, the Commission urges everyone to delay outdoor burning until weather conditions improve.
