| June 26, 2017

FOLKSTON, Ga. (WCTV) – Authorities say it has been nearly two weeks since any smoke has been seen at the site of a wildfire that began in early April in a south Georgia swamp.

Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge Ranger Susan Heisey says June 10 was the last time smoke was seen in the area, and there have been several days of significant rain since then.

The Florida Times-Union reports that the smoke seen nearly two weeks ago was in mounds of limbs, bark and pine needles, where smoldering hot spots can linger.
