If you live in the Chattahoochee National Forest area, you may notice helicopters overhead.
The U.S. Forest Service and other partner agencies are working a 215-acre wildfire in the Chattahoochee National Forest.
According to the forest service, the blaze was near the Black Mountain and Springer Mountain areas of the forest near the Dawson, Gilmer, Fannin and Lumpkin County lines.
Forest service spokeswoman Judy Toppins said, “They are building fire lines, identifying areas where they can remove fuels that will keep the fire contained within identified areas.”
Toppins explained that the helicopters flying over the area were their “eyes in the sky” and they would be doing bucket drops from the choppers as well.
Authorities say no structures were threatened by the fire and it was not threatening Amicalola Falls State Park or Len Foote Hike Inn.
Officials are looking for the cause.
