UPDATE: The fire is mostly put out. The Moore Mills, Keel Mountain, Gurley and Central volunteer fire departments reported to the scene. According to a Madison County worker, the land owner's employee was trying to burn debris and accidentally set the fire. No one was injured.

According to the Alabama Forestry Commission, there are no current burn bans in the state, but when people burn they should consider all the conditions at the time of the burn, so they can maintain control of it.
