SEBRING — Highlands County residents concerned about the continued burning of storm debris will see it continue until the middle of December, at least.
County Engineer Clinton Howerton Jr. said county crews are still burning debris at county land on Skipper Road, at the Highlands County landfill on Arbuckle Creek Road and at the old county landfill on State Road 17, east of Avon Park. Winds at the Skipper Road and State Road 17 locations have sent smoke toward U.S. 27 and downtown Avon Park, respectively. However, he said burning is the only way the county can dispose of debris quickly and affordably.
