If you see a fire later this month, it may not be what you think. A controlled burn of 18 acres at the Atlantic County Range Facility, 175 Betsy Scull Road, Egg Harbor Township, has been rescheduled for Sunday, February 26, weather permitting. The burn was originally scheduled to occur on February 5 but was cancelled due to wet conditions. Controlled burns are done in order to protect against wildfires. Controlled burns eliminate underbrush and leaf litter that can fuel wildfires. They also serve to stimulate new forest growth. This is the first of several planned burns to be conducted this year.
