TRAVIS COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — Where there is smoke, there is fire and that’s especially true if there is a prescribed burn. From Aug. 11-13, Travis County Parks will conduct multiple prescribed burns at Reimers Ranch Park in West Travis County.

The burns are scheduled to start around 11 a.m. and end around 5 p.m. The majority of the smoke is expected to disperse to the northwest and southwest over the park and the surrounding communities.

The prescribed burns this week are the first of six prescribed burns that are planned for the Park through the early winter. Travis County Parks is conducting the burn in cooperation with Lake Travis Fire Rescue, Pedernales Fire Department, and the Texas A&M Forest Service.

The Travis County Parks department said the spring rain helped the brush grow, but due to the dry weather several burns have been prescribed.
