Fire officials say it’ll take a storm with a name to put out this flame

Burning for more than two months, the Honey Prairie Fire has consumed more than 286-thousand acres and 443 miles of the Okefenokee Swamp. And although rain has fallen on some of the swamp, fire officials say it’s not enough to really put an end to the wildfire. WUFT-FM’s, Sanika Dange spoke with Fire Information Officer, Phyllis Swanson who says it will take a storm with a name attached to it to get rid of these flames.
