Texas A&M Forest Service (TFS) will be completing a 54 acre prescribed fire at the Caddo Mounds Historic Site, located just southwest of Alto, TX. The objectives of the burn are to reinstitute fire into a recently planted native prairie demonstration site, and to reduce hazardous fuel loads by consuming the previous two years of growth.
TFS will be working with cooperators from the United States Forest Service and site managers to ensure the objectives of the burn are met safely and effectively.
TFS is monitoring weather conditions to ensure that they will be within accordance to the burn plan, and plan to begin ignitions early in the afternoon if conditions are right.
