A 215-acre fire burning near the Black and Springer mountains in northern Georgia is about 85 percent contained. Officials with the U.S. Forest Service expect the fire to be fully contained by Thursday.
US Forest Service officials say, they expect to have three more air tankers to tackle this year's wildfire season. And ten more are on the way for next year. The service could call on the military aircraft when large fires get out of control anywhere in the country, including South Georgia. A burn ban is going into effect Tuesday.
