IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

The City of Iowa City has announced plans for a controlled burn next week.

The city will perform a controlled burn of a native prairie area that is located east of South Gilbert Street and north of McCallister Court and Oxen Lane the week of April 13.

EarthView Environmental Inc. out of Coralville will conduct the burn. Iowa City Fire Marshal Brian Greer has reviewed and approved the plan.

The city says the burn will be done when there are westerly winds that will blow the smoke to the east, away from the Iowa City Municipal Airport and traffic on South Gilbert Street. They say privately owned areas and buildings will be protected and fire breaks established along all sides of the burn area.
