The fire at the Hazlehurst lumberyard broke out about 7:30 a.m. Monday.

Sheriff Bohannon told WTOC the Georgia Forestry Commission is sending a helicopter from Macon, 70 miles away, to scoop water from a nearby reservoir to dump on the blaze.

The wind was spreading the flames. All the lumber in the warehouse burned as well as the building itself.
