Loxahatchee Wildlife Refuge to burn 3,000 acres

If you see smoke tomorrow morning, you probably don’t have to worry.

The Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge will be lighting a prescribed fire of up to 3,000 acres Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. near the Twenty Mile Bend entrance in the northern part of the refuge.

It will be complete by 4 p.m., and smoke will be visible from Wellington.
