Forest fire in Hall County

The Georgia Forestry Commission is torching 30 acres of underbrush in Hall County today. From the Gainesville Times:

The fire, called a "prescribed burn" is an effort to decrease the underbrush that could serve as fuel for a wildfire in the drought-stricken region, said Doug Andrews, chief forest manager for the Georgia Forestry Commission in Hall County.

That's weird.

I've long been under the impression that only I can prevent forest fires.

Live and learn.
