Fort Sill burns 90 acres as precaution

FORT SILL, Okla._Don't be surprised if you see smoke coming from Fort Sill Wednesday afternoon.

Fort Sill announced that they plan to start burning 90 acres of the east range at 4:00 p.m. Wednesday. They are taking advantage of the low winds to get rid of the grass and limbs. The prescribed burn is being done now to help prevent large grassfires later this year.

Much of the grass in the area is still partially green and is expected to produce quite a bit of smoke.
