Prescribed Burn near Denton, Friday

Officials say a prescribed burn will take place near Denton, Friday, September 6th.

It’s part of restoration work of a 12-acre portion of the Prairie Corridor on Haines Branch.

The burn will go from 10 a.m until noon.

Officials say the controlled burn near W. 3rd and SW. 98th streets is being done in preparation for native planting later this month.

Experts say controlled burns are a tool to manage large areas of native plans and grasses.

They’re having land managers monitor weather and air quality conditions to ensure safe burns.
