All reports show the smoke is coming from the Seminole fire. If you have young children, keep them inside and keep the house closed up and you should be OK. If it gets too bad, it might be a good idea to get out and go down to the beach.

SEMINOLE, Alabama -- Alabama Forestry Commission crews and area firefighters returned to Seminole today after a blaze jumped a containment line and was seen burning 15 acres around noon.
By late afternoon, officials confirmed that the fire was burning in three places and one of the sites may have been set by an arsonist, Stanley Anderson of the Forestry Commission said.
"It's burning out of control, Anderson said. "The spots are over 200 acres and growing. We've got three Alabama Forestry Commission units and two Florida dozer and plow units on it now."
He said high winds and dry conditions were causing the fire to spread.
"Two are possible break outs or sparkovers and one is being investigated because it doesn't fit as a breakout," he said. "It's possibly another cause. Could be lightning. Could be somebody set it. We've got our investigators in there right now on that one."
The fire had burned 1,300 acres before being contained Wednesday, Anderson said. During a routine patrol flight today, a commission pilot saw that the fire was again spreading.
The fire began Sunday and is believed to have been started by lightning, he said.





--I looked at the forecast and this smoke will be coming and going from the Pensacola area for the next few days based on the predicted winds.

The smoke cleared out but left my kids and I with a strong headache. I would love a heads up, if it is going to be that bad again.
