On October 4th, a wildfire started on Fox Mountain that would eventually encompass over 1,500 acres. Firefighters from two states battled the blaze for over two weeks before it was fully contained.
The Fox Mountain Preserve is open for visitation after being closed during the TAG Fall Cave-In at the request of the Georgia Forestry Commission.
SCCi's preserve wasn't greatly affected. Some areas are covered in ash and new roads have been cut that were used in the firefighting effort.
