Lake in the Hills schedules prescribed burn for Saturday

LAKE IN THE HILLS – A prescribed burn has been scheduled for Saturday at the Sierra Court Detention area at the intersection of Algonquin and Pyott roads, according to a village news release.

Encap Inc. will perform the prescribed burn as part of scheduled maintenance of the natural area, the news release said.

Prescribed burns help control invasive plants from taking over an area, and help promote plant diversity, the news release said. Burns also help stimulate new plant growth.

The village advised residents to keep pets inside and windows closed during the prescribed burn. Crews will make efforts to prevent drifting smoke, the news release said.

For more information, contact the village at 847-960-7500.
