By Dick Mangrum, WGOG, Walhalla

The U.S. Forest Service in Oconee County announced plans this morning for a prescribed burn today in Mountain Rest, at Russell Farms.

The prescribed burn is to cover 73 acres and, according to a USFS spokesman,  begins late this morning.

It is still unclear at this time which direction the wind is most likely to blow the smoke.
