Russell Mixson of the S.C. Forestry Commission mixes a solution of one part gasoline to two parts diesel for his "drip torch" Tuesday at Hunting Island State Park. About 50 acres of dry underbrush near the new walking trail was burned off to reduce the risk of wildfires and increase wildlife habitat. The new trail doubles as a fire break, Mixson said.
