Little River Canyon National Preserve in Alabama is preparing for a potential prescribed burn that may happen Monday or anything thereafter through March 14 depending on conditions, according to a news release.

"As with any burn, this project is dictated by weather conditions. With many days of rain and winds out of prescription, we have not had an acceptable burn opportunity. We are hopeful that this weekend will bring enough drying time to allow for a successful burn Monday," the release from the National Park Service states. Firefighters led by the Mississippi Zone Fire Management Team will conduct the burn and park staff will assist.

This project will focus on areas east of Little River within the Wildlife Management Area, including roads 02, 03, and 04. If the burn is to happen Monday, all roads east of the river will be closed Sunday night and no driving or horseback riding will be allowed on those roads until the fire is out and it is safe to enter the area.
