FORT JACKSON, SC (WIS) -

It's an awful smoky sky out there today, isn't it? No worries, according to Fort Jackson. 

Fort Jackson officials say the U.S. Army base is in the process of a prescribed burn between Statue of Liberty and Screaming Eagle Road.

That burn began around 10:30 a.m. 

No word on when the smoke will clear.
