Fort Stewart (WSAV) – If you are seeing smoke around the area, don’t be alarmed. Officials from Fort Stewart are conducting controlled burns today and will continue doing them over the next few weeks as weather conditions allow.

Today’s burn involves about 1600 acres of land.  We’re told the burns help clear brush allowing more space for soldiers to perform military exercises on base and also assists in keeping our environment healthy.
