A prescribed burn is planned at noon Nov. 19 at The Flower Mound to eliminate invasive plant species and encourage native grass and wildflowers to grow come springtime.

The Flower Mound Fire Department is working with The Mound Foundation on the prescribed burn, according to a Nov. 17 news release. Crews will be on-site beginning about 9 a.m. and expect to light the fire about noon, weather permitting. The prescribed burn is expected to last less than an hour, the release stated.

The area is located at 2450 Flower Mound Road in Flower Mound. One lane of Flower Mound Road will be closed during the burn, which will include the strip of grass and wildflowers between the sidewalk and Flower Mound Road.

Officials say smoke is expected to be light and advise anyone with health conditions to remain indoors with windows closed.

Numerous firefighting apparatus and firefighters will be stationed in the area as a precaution. People with questions may call the nonemergency dispatch number at 972-539-0525.
