Valdosta - Severe weather throughout South Georgia has helped firefighters put out a 300 acre wild fire in Hahira.
It took firefighters four hours to contain the blaze that destroyed woods and threatened 10 homes at the North end of Lowndes County yesterday afternoon.
However, smaller hot spots remained and could have kept smoldering for several days.
But firefighters say the rain has put them out and they run almost no chance of re-igniting.
They believe the fire was started by a control burn, but with no burn permits in the area, the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
