Wednesday, October 6, 2010
If conditions are right, the Fort will be on fire again Thursday and Friday, Oct. 7-8, as the Army conducts more controlled burns as part of an effort to remove unexploded ordnances from the former military base.
The two areas to be burned, totaling 277 acres, are about 3.5 miles northwest of the Highway 68/Toro Park corridor. The burn may begin as early as 8am and continue past noon.
The Army warns that nearby residential areas may be smoky. For more info, visit www.fortordcleanup.com, or call 1-800-852-9699.
