Where There's Smoke...

Updated: Monday, July 14 2014, 10:26 AM CDT
Officials say 380 acres of land will go up in flames today.

The Austin Fire Dept. along with local emergency service districts will begin a prescribed burn to protect water reaching the Barton Springs Aquifer.

Austin Water Utility’s Wild land Conservation unit looks at wind speed and direction closely to see if conditions are ideal. These burns safely mimic the natural fire cycle and maintain landscapes.

Smoke may be visible west of Buda from morning to sunset.Where There's Smoke...
