I Smell Something Burning

ThinkStock

I think I heard that 10 times yesterday (Wednesday).  Well, if you said it, too, you were right.  There WAS something burning — but it wasn’t an accident.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service set the fire — and controlled it — so that Ft. Sill and the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge would be better protected this long, hot summer.

They burned over 2,500 acres and didn’t have a lot of time to get the word out since they had to wait for the right kind of weather.  Even so, they’ve been planning it for months.  Doing a controlled burn now will greatly reduce the risk of a larger (and out-of-control) fire later in the season that could seriously impact farms, private houses and even structures inside the city limits.

So, if you made the comment Wednesday that you thought you smelled something burning — your nose is just fine — and you’re now a little safer thanks to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
