... Smoke will push northwest from ongoing wildfire...

Smoke from the west Mims wildfire in the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge

miles but will be reduced to less than 1 mile at times generally
near and just northwest of the wildfire. Some locations impacted
the most will be Folkston... Racepond... and Waycross.

Although the general public may not be affected... children, pregnant women,
the elderly, and those that have heart or lung disease are especially

irritants, and exposures to high concentrations can cause
persistent cough, phlegm, wheezing, and difficulty breathing.
