Temple, TX — Temple Fire & Rescue will conduct a prescribed burn this morning at the Draughon-Miller Central Texas Regional Airport. The burn will begin at 8:30 a.m. It is scheduled to be completed by noon.
The controlled burning is being done in preparation for the Central Texas Airshow, which takes place May 2 to May 4, 2014. Prescribed burning eliminates fuels such as grass, leaves, and branches and produces less undesirable effects than alternative methods.
The burn will be closely monitored by the fire department and airport personnel.
