Three fire units were dispatched on Friday to the brow area of Cloudland after calls came in about a brush fire.

When the fire fighters arrived on the scene at 298 Brow Drive they discovered that the fire was contained and the person had a burn permit.

Residents are reminded that while it is ok to burn, you still must get a permit from the Georgia Forrestry Commission.  In order to get a burn permit you can call the local office of the Georgia Forrestry Commission at  706-857-0700 or you can go online to www.gfc.ga.us to obtain a permit.
