Nashville - Foresters in Berrien County are still battling a wildfire that re-ignited yesterday afternoon.

The wildfire scorched about five hundred acres between Nashville and Alapaha.

Foresters have slowed down the fire by pushing it toward a pond on 10 Mile Bay Road.

They believe high winds Monday restarted an arson fire that was set on April 1st.  The accused arsonist, Brent Boyd of Nashville, was arrested nearly two weeks later.

The Georgia Forestry Commission says these restarts are spreading their resources thin.  "We've got guys working real late hours, no days off. That's what's hurting us right now. The new sets and the new starts," says Travis Watson of the Berrien County Georgia Forestry Commission Office.

Once this fire is out, Boyd could be held responsible and face steeper fines.  The forestry commission hopes to have this fire out by Wednesday.
