The nearly four-month-old Honey Prairie Fire in Georgia continues to grow. The supervisory refuge ranger at Okefenokee National wildlife refuge Art Webster says safety is their priority.
Webster adds that Gainesville residents might experience some smoke by Saturday.
A group of High Springs residents will have to wait for the High Springs City Commission to resume its discussion of whether to ban the use of plastic straws and carry-out containers in all establishments in the city. The commission said it will revisit the issue at an as-yet unscheduled strategic planning session.
