If you hear a boom or see smoke over the Augusta area today, there might be a reason.

Also, according to a news release, Fort Gordon will conduct a prescribed burn of 200 acres today in training areas 23, 24, 28, and 29.

Second hand smoke is bad unless the federal government is causing the BURN. Bet they do not even have to get a permit.
