The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Jonathan Dickinson State Park will conduct a prescribed burn on Thursday June 21st, weather permitting.
The prescribed burn will consist of approximately 75 acres of pine flatwoods east of I-95 between Mile Markers 89 and 90. Prescribed fires are only conducted when weather parameters are suitable. The final decision to burn is made daily, after reviewing the Predicted Fire Weather forecast for that particular day and after obtaining a burn authorization from the Florida Forest Service.
Smoke conditions may be present within the Northern boundaries of the City. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at (561) 248-1038.
