A helicopter provided by the Alabama Department of Transportation is expected to start dumping the water quickly to prevent the fire approaches the Sportsplex and other places that could be in danger, said Martin.
A few hours ago, electricity was diverted from the power lines are endangered in the park, he said.
The fire started after 1 pm near camping areas in the park, he said. It spread quickly due to dry conditions. At about 2 pm, the Georgia Forestry Department requested assistance from firefighters from Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, Foley, Fort Morgan, and Oyster Bay, said.
