WESTCHESTERT TOWNSHIP | A prescribed fire will be conducted Thursday in the area of U.S. 12 and Furnessville Road.

The Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore Fire Management staff said a small portion of the 190-acre area was burned earlier this spring in order to make it easier to complete the larger portion of the burn in one day.

The staff will conduct the burn between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. as long as weather conditions are favorable.

The IDNL said smoke may be visible from U.S. 12, U.S. 20, Interstate 94 and Ind. 49.
