Controlled Burns Planned For Cherry Point Saturday

Don't be alarmed if you see plumes of smoke in the Cherry Point area this weekend.

Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point will be doing controlled burns on Saturday if weather permits.

The base says the burns are done periodically to reduce forest fuel, improve draining land condition and enhance wildlife habitat values of Cherry Point forest lands.
