SPICEWOOD, Texas (KXAN) — Before you start making phone calls expressing concern about a potentially large fire towards the direction of Pace Bend Park, know there’s a prescribed burn and all is well.
Monday’s prescribed burn begins at 11 a.m. and will go to 6 p.m., with the bulk taking approximately two to four hours to complete. The burn will consume approximately 100 acres to reduce wildfire dangers and improve ecosystem health in the park.
It’s expected the smoke, which is has been forecast to be light due to the size of the fire, will get caught by a southeasterly wind and get carried across the lake towards homes in the northwest.
The park will remain open but some portions, specifically along the west side of the park from the Collier boat ramp to Thrasher Cove, will close for part of the week. A portion of the park road will be closed during burn.
