Prescribed burn planned today in Lehigh Acres

October 27, 2017
Special to THE CITIZEN ( , Lehigh Acres Citizen

The Florida Forest Service will conduct a 40-acre prescribed burn today off of Wheeler Road.

The fire will help reduce accumulated dead fuels, maintain habitat for wildlife and improve wildfire safety for homeowners who live in the area. If the conditions are favorable, additional acreage may be added to the burn with a maximum of 75 acres burned.

Residents and motorists should exercise caution in the area.

The boundary of the prescribed burn is Wheeler Road on the east side, 2nd Place on the north side, Hines Avenue on the west end and 1st Place on the south side.

The Florida Forest Service, a division of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, manages more than 1 million acres of state forests, provides management assistance on more than 17 million acres of private and community forests, while protecting homes, forestland and natural resources from the devastating effects of wildfire on more than 26 million acres.
