Friday was the first of this years prescribed burns for the Allen County Parks prairies. The area burned was the south oak tree field at Fox Island. The back burn went well. The main burn didn't. It looked like the burn would go well, but the fire didn't spread. Now there is a good black perimeter for the next burn. This was my first chance to use the drip-torch. At previous burns I was just there taking pictures. This time I was actually working for the parks and was able to participate.
