Controlled Burn in Craig County on hold since Tuesday

Posted: Updated:
The U.S. Forest Service began a controlled burn in Craig County earlier this week.

Many people called and e-mailed WSLS and were concerned about the burn with the high winds and low humidity.

The fire extends across 400 acres just outside of New Castle.

However, forest service leaders say nothing has been lit since Tuesday. They say with the windy conditions, they are monitoring the situation and will not continuing burning until the weather changes.

At this point, it's not a wildfire.
