Camilla-  A warning Thursday night in Mitchell County where weather conditions mixed with smoke from a pecan warehouse fire could prove dangerous.

The National Weather Service notified the Mitchell County Sheriff's office that low clouds tonight could help hold down the smoke from the fire at Camilla Commodities Service Incorporated.

That smoke could create a visibility issue south and southeast of Camilla along Highways 97, 19, 112, Old Georgia 3, and Old Dothan Camilla Road. Motorists are urged to use caution especially after nightfall and early Friday morning.

The fire continues to burn inside the warehouse and investigators are still looking for what sparked the fire.
