FORT BENNING, Ga — Two wildfires are burning in training areas on Fort Benning, according to an Army release.

Nate Snook with the Fort Benning Public Affairs Office says the fires are contained in the A-20 and K-15 impact areas. He says all areas of Fort Benning and the surrounding areas should expect some smoke brought on by winds.

Snook’s release says smoke from K-15 will drift towards the west in the direction of east and south Columbus.  As winds slow down during the night, Harmony Church Cantonment area may be affected by smoke.

Smoke from A-20 will move towards Lawson Army Airfield and South Main Post.

The Army will continue to monitor the fires.
