It is that time of the year when the Kisatchie National Forest Ranger Districts are conducting their prescribed burning operations. The Kisatchie burns approximately 100,000 acres a year, or 1/6 of the forest. Prescribed burns are used to help us reduce the hazardous fuel build up in order to prevent an unintended wildfire.
