I pray that God will send rain to help put the fire out. I pray for all theose that are effected by the fire and all those that are helping to put the fire out.

I'm sorry, closest was misspelled in the last paragraph. Also it's Towns County, not Townes-in the picture captions. Otherwise, thank you for the information, It is hard to find information on small town news.

I was just in Hiawassee for lunch at Asiano, and noted that the fire towards Young Harris seems to have picked up. We live on Owl Creek Road, south of the town of Hiawassee, and the smoke is quite thick.

What is the percentage of containment of this fire on Friday afternoon

Yes we need prayer, it's getting worse on the areas that it has spread. Smoke is blacker and thicker this morning. Wish all the gawkers would stay out of the highways and residential sections. This is not a sightseeing tour, it's a serious problem and all the traffic, etc. isn't helping.

I was just north of Young Harris today 11/11/07 and there was a thick blanket of smoke over the town. The trails around the Brasstown Valley Resort were closed and guests there were asking about refunds. Staff there said this was the worst they had seen in the week of the fire. The plume was blowing northward toward Young Harris from a mountain north of Brasstown Bald.

Is there a map of the location?
How close is it to Ramey Mtn?
