Tire Fire Flares During Dry Conditions in Georgia

Very dry conditions and high winds make the fire danger high.

In the Atlanta area two fires quickly got out of control. One was near the Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson Airport, and then one east of Atlanta in Gwinnett County.

Tires caught on fire and spread. The burning rubber is very difficult for firefighters to control and put out.

The fire spread and burned at least a couple of junked cars.
