Crews continue to battle Rock Face Mountain fire

Posted: Updated:
ROCKY FACE, GA (WRCB) -

A brush fire atop Rock Face Mountain in Whitfield County has crews working to contain the blaze.

The fire ignited Thursday in a remote area of the mountain, which is an exceptionally steep, rocky, and hard to navigate section that poses a challenge to crews working on the fire.

Crews were dispatched to the area including bulldozers, engines, and various personnel.

Georgia Forestry crews worked diligently into the night, according to Pat Stockett of the
Georgia Forestry Commission.

They worked to install fire check lines and secure structures towards the bottom of the mountain. 

No evacuation orders were given to residents, who were able to stay in their homes.  

The fire is not contained currently, but fire breaks are in place.

    Good Tuesday.  We are all under a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY and some of us under a WIND CHILL ADVISORY through the day. It will be cold all day with high temperatures only reaching the upper 20s and low 30s.  These high temps will be reached early on at about noon, and then temps will be dropping through the afternoon as a cold front works through.
