FORT BENNING, GA (WTVM) -

The Directorate of Public Works is conducting a controlled/prescribed burn in the south and central portion of post today.

Winds are favorable from the north and smoke is not expected to escape post.

Prescribed burning helps prevent the occurrence of wildfires stemming from military training activities.  Firebreaks around impact areas are maintained annually to contain any wildfires that may be triggered by munitions.
