Controlled Burn In Murray County


A 1300 acre controlled burn in Murray County gets a little help from volunteers and firefighters. According to the Arbuckle Rangeland Restoration Association, one reason for the burn is to battle the spread of Eastern Red Cedar which can be fuel for wildfires. The Eastern Red Cedar is a tree that can also consume several gallons of water per foot a day. Find out more about the story here.
