JBA controlled burn

Release Number: 010817

In preparation for the Andrews Air Show: Air and Space Expo, there will be a prescribed burn on base Sept. 1.

The burn will reduce or remove grass fuels to prepare the site for air show pyrotechnic displays taking place from Sept. 15 to 17.

Due to the relatively small burn unit size and light grass fuels, smoke impacts are expected to be short term.
