Controlled burn at Forest Park.

ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – Several areas of Forest Park were set on fire Monday morning as Forest Park Forever and the city’s Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department conducted a controlled burn in the park.

The burn helps maintain vitality and health of the park’s savannas and prairies far more effectively than mowing or doing nothing.

Nearby residents were notified of the burn.
