Controlled Burns Starting at Hanford

RICHLAND, Wash.- The Hanford Fire Department begins controlled burns around the site.

For the next few months, the Department will burn off large, dry areas to reduce future fires like the one that ravaged the site in 2000.

Some smoke will be visible from afar.

You're still asked to call 911 if you see smoke in the area.
