Controlled burn a tool for improvement


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

Flames and fumes rise from the prescribed burn on approximately 200 acres of refuge land at Bitter Lake National Wildlife Refuge mid-morning on Thursday. Floyd Truetken, Refuge Manager at Bitter Lake, said the controlled burn is a tool for habitat improvement for the grass and wetlands — as well as for wildfire prevention for buildings at the refuge. Truetken (not pictured) said the burn began before lunch and would be finished by mid-afternoon. (Alison Penn Photo)
