FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) - If you're seeing a cloud of smoke in the Florence area, the likely source is a controlled burn.

Florence County fire and Rescue Coordinator Sam Brockington says there is a controlled burn on Williamson Road Tuesday.

The South Carolina Forestry Commission reports that the burn is about 60 acres in size, and is for hazard reduction.
