Ware County - Evacuations are lifted for the 50 families displaced over the holiday weekend from the massive wildfires still raging in South Georgia.

There are currently 33 fires throughout the state that have scorched nearly half a million acres.

The big turn around fire continues to be the largest, having burned almost 4 hundred thousand acres in Ware, Charlton, and Clinch counties. Fire fighters believe it's only 50 percent contained.

The Swamp Farm Road Fire in Ware County has destroyed over 85 thousand acres but is now 80 percent contained.

These fires have converged and most of the activity still remains within in the Okefenokee Swamp and Wildlife Refuge.
