Army plans to burn 90 acres of brush at Schofield Barracks


The Army plans to burn 90 acres at a Schofield Barracks live-fire range this weekend to reduce the risk of fire accidentally breaking out there in the future. 

U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii officials say the prescribed burn will eliminate fire-prone vegetation. 

The burn is scheduled for Saturday but won’t go ahead unless required wind conditions, temperatures and fuel moisture conditions are met.

The Army set Nov. 17 as an alternate date for the burn. 

U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii said in a statement this week that the state Department of Health’s Clean Air Branch approved the burn plan. The Army has also notified the Honolulu Fire Department and the state’s Division of Forestry.
