Prescribed Fire Near Gary

Share this post

Fire crews from Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore will be burning approximately 10 acres of land near the Paul H. Douglas Center, near Gary, Indiana this afternoon. As long as weather conditions remain good, crews will be burning the small parcel of land on the west side of North Lake Street, north of 3rd Ave. and south of Birch Ave. Fire officials say tThe burn is part of long term plan to improve animal and plant habitats in the habitats found in Miller Woods.   The prescribed fire program at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore is conducted by trained and experienced National Park Service fire personnel. Smoke dispersal is a primary concern and park staff say they will try to limit smoke in the area by monitoring wind and atmospheric conditions prior to ignitions, but smoke drifting in and around park lands and roadways is possible.
