Columbia Road reopened after smoke causes visibility issues

Posted: January 14, 2012 - 6:25pm

Columbia Road has reopened Saturday afternoon after heavy smoke from a woods fire near Patriot’s Park limited motorists’ visibility.

The fire was reported at about 12:45 p.m. and caused smoke to cloud Columbia Road between William Few Parkway and the Ivy Falls subdivision, Columbia County Emergency and Operations Director Pam Tucker said in an email.

Responding to the fire were ten units from Martinez-Columbia Fire Rescue. The Georgia Forestry Commission also sent a tractor and plane to help extinguish the fire.
