TALLADEGA COUNTY, AL (WBRC) - Folks living near the Talladega National Forest can expect to occasionally see and smell smoke.
The forest service plans to burn 28,000 acres this year in a series of controlled burns.

The controlled burns are an effort to remove dead brush that can lead to big uncontrolled forest fires.
