The smoke from the Arabia Bay Wildfire in Clinch County caused the Moody Air Show to ground aircrafts early because of visibility on Saturday.

Moody says the Federal Aviation Administration would not allow them to fly under those conditions.

The airbase put off the show for an hour before ending it early.

The Georgia Forestry says the wildfire has been burning for 6 days.

More than 650 acres has been burned.

Officials expect the wildfire to burn through the entire 5,000 acre bay because of the dry conditions.

They say it's been tough to contain the fire.
