How will smoke from the fire be managed?

When getting ready for the burn, ecologists create a plan that outlines what conditions must be present to manage smoke. Through proper planning and selection of wind direction, efforts are made to plan for smoke rising away from homes, roads, and other sensitive areas. However, homeowners who will be away from their home during daytime hours should keep windows closed.
