About 5,000 acres will be burned at Fort Indiantown Gap through Nov. 23 to reduce the risk for wildfires.

The public may notice smoke from the installation while the prescribed burns are conducted as weather permits between 8 a.m. and 11 p.m.

The burns, which reduce the amount of combustible material naturally existing in the wilderness, will not be done unless conditions such as humidity, wind and temperature are ideal for managing fires.
