Several wildfires burn on Ft. Benning

FORT BENNING, Ga. – Fort Benning’s Public Affairs Office says several wildfires continue to burn on the installation in the Malone Complex, Kilo and Alpha areas to include A-20 impact area.

Wildfires are contained to their specific areas, but will continue to burn and smolder for several days.

Forecasted east winds will send the smoke west Tuesday tonight and Wednesday.

The cooler temperatures Tuesday tonight will allow the smoke to settle in low lying areas, especially along creeks and streams.

All cantonment areas to include the Martin Army Community Hospital and in South Columbus will likely be affected by the smoke Wednesday morning.
