Prescribed burn in southern Citrus County

-A A +A

The Florida Forestry Service is currently conducting a 1,900-acre prescribed burn near the intersection of County Road 491 and West Stage Coach Trail.
Prescribed burns reduce the brush and overgrowth that could serve as fuel for dangerous and fast-moving wildfires. These controlled burns also return nutrients to the soil, provide better forage for wildlife and help control certain plant and tree diseases.
