Waycross -- Monday will be the seventh day since that fire has started. The Georgia Forestry Commission believes they have the wild fire about 45 percent contained. They say it's due to light winds and cooperating weather conditions the last day and a half.
Sunday they believed the fire had spread between 56,000 and 58,000 acres, but today's official measurements showed it was just over 55,000.
They say the area still blazing is to the south of the fire towards the Okefenokee Swamp, and they are working now to contain that. If the weather keeps up, they are optimistic they'll have this fire out sooner rather than later.
The Ware County Community has donated thousands upon thousands of dollars worth of food, drinks, clothing and other needs to those fighting this week long wild fire.
And finally some help has arrived for them as well.
Volunteers are unpacking the staging area here at the National Guard Armory.
It was moved along with the relief center and mobile command vehicle from the high school last night in anticipation of school resuming.
And with this new location comes some new volunteers and new hope.
The Georgia Southern Baptist Convention Disaster relief is relieving the Ware Community from feeding the hundreds of firefighters, foresters, and volunteers.
They've brought enough food to prepare 200 meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
They say hearing the story of these firefighters helped motivate them to get here at soon as possible. "We appreciate the use of the building, and we appreciate what the fire fighters are doing for the community. They are the real heroes, with what they're doing out there in the field," said Chief Cook. Earl Lawson.
The group has been working in Americus since it was devastated by the tornados in March. They will continue working until this fire is finally put out.
