Southeast Wildfires

Dangerous wildfires continue to burn across the southeast tonight.

Communities threatened as the wildfires grow…  fire teams are now rushing into the region from across the country.

Raging wildfires have already swallowed tens-of-thousands of acres.

North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory says it’s one of the worst conditions for wildfires the state has ever seen.

Officials say there are multiple fires developing, and more seem to be popping up.

Georgia, Kentucky, Alabama and Tennessee… more than 5-thousand firefighters are battling the flames.  They are fighting along the front lines and from the air.

Unfortunately, there is no sign of relief in the forecast.

Here at home in the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry, we too could see smoke and smell smoke.  Westerly winds are picking up the smoke from the wildfires and sending it to us.
