  • South Carolina Forestry Report for Feb.10th 2008

    By Scott Hawkins, Public Information Dir.


    For Immediate Release
    February 10, 2008, 5:30 pm

    (Columbia) As of the 4:00 pm hour today, the
    South Carolina Forestry Commission?s crews have
    responded to approximately 91 wildfires statewide.
    Most fires are minor in size and threat however
    a few are several hundred acres in size.

    Significant events today include a fire on Hwy. 701
    in Horry Co. which has damaged or destroyed ten homes,
    is 250 acres in size and at this hour is attempting to
    ?jump? Hwy. 701. SCFC crews are on scene in full force
    with about a dozen personnel and ten tractor plows, the
    primary method for fighting wildland fires.

    A fire near the intersection of Harold Dr. and Powell Rd.
    in Georgetown Co., SC is currently 300 acres in size with
    a potential of reaching 1,000 acres.

    In Spartanburg Co. where Hwy 29 merges with Hwy 85, fire
    is threatening a subdivision. This wildfire is
    approximately 60 acres in size. SCFC crews are
    currently assisted by 50 people from surrounding
    fire departments. No homes have been lost as of
    this moment.

    In Richland Co. in the Lake Carolina residential
    area, apparently a carelessly tossed cigarette
    sparked a wildland fire totaling about five acres
    in size. On Kelly Mill Rd., a debris burn destroyed
    a $30,000 storage building/workshop and a pickup truck.

    High winds, low humidity and on-going drought conditions
    have fueled this state?s wildfire hazard this weekend.
    Firefighters and dispatchers with the South Carolina
    Forestry Commission are working around the clock to
    keep ahead of these fire outbreaks. This state is in
    the midst of its wildfire season. While outdoor burning
    is not currently banned, current weather conditions may
    make your burn more difficult to control.

    Always a day late and a dollar short!
