(UNDATED) - The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service plans to conduct a series of prescribed burns at Muscatatuck and Big Oaks national wildlife refuges in the coming weeks.

Fire range technician Casey Mefford said the burns, which involve anywhere from 10 to 1,000 acres, will occur only when weather conditions, including relative humidity, temperature and wind speeds, are OK.

The burns are designed to improve wildlife habitats and remove hazardous fuels, reducing the chance of wildfires.
