Photos: Prescribed burn at Sycamore park encourages new growth

April 10, 2019

Smoke could be seen for miles but the fire at Old Mill Park in Sycamore was set intentionally. The Sycamore Park District in conjunction with ENCAP Inc. was doing a prescribed burn at the park Tuesday. The park district does controlled burns about once every three years to help clear some of the built up dead brush allowing the new plants and grasses to grow better.
