The Tennessee Division of Forestry and the U.S. Department of Energy will have controlled burns beginning at noon and ending at 7 p.m. Monday, April 5.
The controlled burns will continue Tuesday if necessary, the City of Oak Ridge said.
The controlled burn will be in the area of Wisconsin and Whippoorwill Drive in west Oak Ridge.
The city said the controlled burns are supported by the Oak Ridge Fire Department, and they will create smoke.
“This is a controlled burn,” the city said. “Do not call 911 to report smoke in the area unless you see fire threatening private property.”
The walking and cycling trails will be closed to the public. There will be fire fighting vehicles and personnel in the area. Please use caution, the city said.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
