The United States Forest Service (via the Newberry County Sherrif’s Office) advises that a very large controlled burn will be conducted today in northeaster Newberry County. The following is from the NCSO:
“A large prescribed burn today in the Molly’s rock area off US 176. 1930 acres will be part of a controlled burn by the US Forest Service. With current weather conditions, most of the smoke will move toward Union County (north and west of the burn). Smoke will be visible for several miles. The US Forest Service will have equipment and personnel on scene to insure safety.”
