A 637-acre wildfire is burning in the Sipsey Wilderness of the Bankhead National Forest as of 5 p.m. on Oct. 19, 2015.  Beginning Oct. 20, there will be a campfire restriction only in the Sipsey Wilderness.  U.S. Forest Service fire personnel are taking immediate action to contain the fire that has temporarily closed five trails leading into the Sipsey Wilderness.  The public living near the Sipsey Wilderness may see an increase in smoke and Forest Service personnel.  Hikers planning to use trails in the Sipsey Wilderness and hunters in the Black Warrior Management Area are asked to check the Forest Service website, bulletin boards, Facebook and Twitter for a listing of open trails and status updates.  The safety of the public and wildland firefighters is our number one priority.
