Firefighters with Eglin’s Wildland Support Branch began conducting a burnout operation around 9 a.m. Wednesday to halt the progress of the fire. Firefighters could not battle the blaze directly because the area is a UXO location — a place where unexploded ordinance is in the ground. Instead, they used roads and natural barriers to keep the blaze from spreading. “We could not put mechanical equipment on there,” Spaits said. “So the way to resolve that is to do burnout operations.”
If you find anything that appears to be an explosive device, do not touch it, leave it where it is and call the police. We will contact the appropriate agencies to properly dispose of the item.
