A controlled burn is scheduled for March 9 in the Shawnee National Forest in parts of Union County.

Officials from the Forest Service say that the smoke from that burn should be visible by mid-afternoon and only last for a few hours.

Residents near Wolf Lake, Pomona, Alto Pass, and Cedar Lake will be the ones most likely to see and smell that smoke.

While that burn is taking place, a portion of Pine Hills Road between the Pine Hills Campground and the McGee Hill Picnic area may be closed.
