Smoke from Bankhead National Forest fire traveling for miles

(WAFF) - Heavy smoke could be seen across south Huntsville on Thursday afternoon.

The source of the smoke appears to have been from two separate fires. One was a fire in a wooded area of Colbert County where multiple agencies were called for assistance. The second was a controlled burn at Bankhead National Forest in Lawrence County.

The U.S. Forest Service is burning 1800 acres at the park.
