Controlled burns are currently being conducted by Winnipeg’s Public Works department until next month.

The city says burning is occurring in natural areas with appropriate fire guards in place.

The burns play an important role in the preservation and restoration of prairies. Lack of fire allows weeds to invade these endangered plant communities.

Weather permitting, burns will last until June 14.
