Prescribed burn set for Southside area Thursday
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A prescribed burn is planned for a large area on the Southside Thursday.
The burn is set for 600-acre plot of land south of Interstate 295 and east of Baymeadows Road. Winds are expected to blow the smoke towards the Ponte Vedra area. Those with respiratory aliments are urged to take extra precautions.
Those in charge of the burn say it is intended to decrease dry brush in the area ahead of the spring & summer fire season.
