COLUMBUS, Ga. – You might have noticed the smokey hazy sky Thursday across the Chattahoochee Valley from wildfires.

The biggest fire is currently burning north of Atlanta. News 3 reached out to firefighters to find out if people should be concerned.

First, they say not to burn during our drought season. The ground is much too dry right now.

Second, if you are someone who has respiratory issues, you should take precautions.

It is recommended that you stay inside when possible and keep medicines nearby if you suffer from Asthma.
