BEVERLY SHORES | Fire crews from Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore will conduct small burns around the Century of Progress Homes along Dune Ridge near Beverly Shores starting about 10 a.m.

Park officials said these small prescribed burns are used to remove fuel near structures in preparation for a larger prescription burn at a future date.

The prescribed burns are conducted by trained fire personnel to reduce potential wild fire fuel, and improve animal and plant habitats.

Park officials said IDNL staff will do everything possible to limit smoke in the area by monitoring wind and atmospheric conditions prior to ignitions. However, smoke drifting in and around park lands and roadways is possible.
