Smoky conditions reported Friday afternoon in Fayette no cause for alarm

Smoke reports were coming in late Friday afternoon from across Fayette County. County public safety officials said the smoke is entering the county from a controlled burn in Meriwether County.

Fayette Fire and Emergency Services spokesman Pete Nelms at 6:45 p.m. said winds from a controlled burn in Meriwether County are carrying smoke into the Fayette County area. The 911 center is experiencing a number of smoke-related calls, with some residents believing the smoke is perhaps from a nearby fire.

Nelms said smoke from the controlled burn is likely to continue making its way into Fayette County through Friday night and into Saturday.
