Bad News For Georgia Fire Control

Weather conditions, which include high winds, and lowered temperatures and humidity, are certainly no help to firefighters who expect Ware county's "monster fire" to worsen today. Winds advisories are expected to last until 6pm.

Twenty-seven additional homes have been evacuated, three of which were lost to the flames. Flame lengths have been observed as high as 60 to 70 feet, and the fire's progression has been about one mile per hour. After 11 days, this fire is only about 50% contained, though the number of firefighters on task has risen from 350 to over 600.

I'll try to get out this afternoon for more photos.
