Smoky haze coming from Walker County

From Staff Reports

— The smoky haze seen — and smelled — across parts of Dalton and southern Whitfield County is coming from a controlled burn in Walker County, according to a dispatcher at Whitfield 911.

The U.S. Forestry Service is conducting a 1,000-acre controlled burn at John’s Mountain and windy conditions are bringing the smoke into the Greater Dalton area.
