The Martha’s Vineyard Prescribed Fire Partnership plans to conduct a controlled burn today, Monday, Nov. 26, at the Long Point Reservation in West Tisbury.

During the burn smoke and the odor of smoke may be noticeable around Edgartown Great Pond and Katama Bay.

The fire team will closely monitor local weather conditions, such as wind and humidity, and make adjustments in the schedule as needed to ensure the safety of both crew members and residents, according to a statement from the Nature Conservancy on behalf of the Martha’s Vineyard Prescribed Fire Partnership.

Controlled burns are used to reduce the amount of fuel for wildfires, and to help to restore the health of plants and natural areas.
