Fire managers are now conducting prescribed burns in the Ouachita and Ozark-St. Francis National Forests in Arkansas.

National forest officials say the burns are planned Friday in Yell and Scott counties.

Three burns are planned in the Ouachita National Forest for a total of 6,922 acres. Another burn of 2,551 acres is planned for the Ozark-St. Francis National Forest near Danville.

A prescribed fire is one that is ignited by highly trained fire personnel under specified fuel and weather conditions to achieve specific resource objectives. Prescribed burns can help rebuild habitats and remove invasive species.

Certain weather conditions such as certain humidity and winds must be present before a burn.
