Share this post

Fire crews from Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore will try again tomorrow to conduct a prescribed burn in the West Beach area of the park, near Portage. Officials, weather permitting, crews will be burning about 73 acres along the West Beach access road, between the parking lots and the West Beach entrance station. The prescribed fire is being done to reduce potential wild fire fuel and improve animal and plant habitats. The fire was scheduled for today but was called off due to the weather conditions and instead conducted small controlled burns around the Century of Progress Homes along Dune Ridge near Beverly Shores
