PHOTOS | Wildfires spread across the mid-South The Rough Ridge Fire has consumed 20,000 acres, so far.For scope, let’s compare how much of metro Atlanta that would cover.Remember when veteran Johnny Bananas was asked what language most people speak in Australia? How about the time when Cara Maria said Muhammed Ali’s real name was Mahatma Ghandi? Needless to say, this season’s Trivia game was an epic let-down. This could’ve been the best episode of “The Challenge,” ever! Devin struggles to remember how many stripes are on the American flag — CT’s answer to that question during “Free Agents” was 12 — and while his fellow contestants are relishing at his embarrassment, Cheyenne swears to murder her dumb partner the moment she gets out of her coffin.The emotional combination would’ve made for fantastic TV.Firefighters think they can keep the fires away from about 60 homes, but the fire is expected to double in size soon, to more than 3,000 acres.If that happens, it could possibly threaten other residential areas.
The Georgia Scenic Byways Program is a community-driven effort which seeks to preserve this legacy of treasured places in a way that enhances economic development.
Following State Route 99 and US 17, the Altamaha Historic Scenic Byway runs for 17 miles through Mc Intosh and Glynn Counties and the City of Darien.
Traveling from the Sapelo Island Visitors Center to the historic Needwood Church and School, the Byway passes Fort King George, Butler Island and Hofwyl-Broadfield Plantations, the Darien waterfront, sweeping marsh views, and majestic Live Oaks draped with Spanish Moss.
Homes near the Rock Mountain Fire in Rabun were also evacuated, but the Rabun County Sheriff’s Office wrote that some of those evacuations were lifted.
A pre-evacuation, which means residents should be ready to move at a moment’s notice, still remains for the area.
