DAUFUSKIE ISLAND, SC (WTOC) -

You may be smelling smoke in the Savannah/Hilton Head Island area but it's not from the West Mims Fire.

Crews have been battling a large fire on Daufuskie Island - between Tybee and Hilton Head - in Beaufort County.

According to the South Carolina Forestry Commission's wildfire activity map, the 54-acre fire was caused by someone smoking a cigarette and it is now contained.

The South Carolina Forestry Commission was on scene Wednesday helping to create a "fire break" around the perimeter of the fire. The State Forestry Commission is still helping local firefighters monitor the fire.
