If you see a huge pillar of smoke today, chances are it’s Eglin Air Force Base conducting a controlled burn on the reservation.


Eglin has a prescribed burn planned in tactical training areas C-72 and N-19.


The burn will be about 2,100 acres on the eastern portion of the reservation, north of Range Road 416, east of Range Road 503, south of Range Road 412, and West of Range Road 214.


The winds are predicted out of the south-southwest with a mixing height at 3,400 feet.


Smoke impacts should be minimal in sensitive areas.
