Intentional prairie burn blazes, smokes
People saw smoke and flames at DeSanctis Park after 4 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 1, as the River Falls Fire Department executed a prescribed burn of prairie grasses on the northeast side of the park.
DeSanctis Park is located along Division Street/County Rd. M, about two miles west of Main Street. Windy weather threatened to delay the burn until a future date, but the department found favorable conditions at burn time.
