Up In Flames

A forest fire on both sides of Bellingrath Gardens Road roars towards the Gardens, fed by blustery winds. Bellingrath employees, neighbors, and volunteer fire departments work to keep the fire away from the center of the Gardens and the Bellingrath Home. On March 19th flames jump some 500 yards across Fowl River and burn Bebee Point. Over 4,000 acres are lost, 700 of which belonged to the Bellingrath-Morse Foundation.
