Large controlled burn planned for Wednesday

Blaze, smoke likely visible from I-45

Posted: Tuesday, January 29, 2013 11:45 pm | Updated: 11:26 pm, Wed Jan 30, 2013.

Residents of La Marque and Hitchcock as well as motorists along state Highway 6 and Interstate 45 will likely notice large plumes of smoke coming from the University of Houston’s Coastal Center today. The fire will be deliberately set and is part of a training exercise.

The Fire Weather Research Laboratory of the San Jose State University’s Department of Meteorology and Climate Science in California and the Texas Forest Service will ignite a prescribed burn to help measure the atmospheric affects that happen during a wildland fire on a tallgrass prairie.
