Record number of perscribed burns in Florida

    State officials say they've overseen a record number of prescribed burns during the past year.
    The Florida Forest Service reported prescribed fires covering more than 2.5 million acres.
    That's one of the highest numbers ever reported by any state in the country.
      Prescribed burns help reduce the build-up of flammable plant materials that can fuel wildfires.
    They can also help with disease control in pine trees and the preservation of some endangered plants and animals.
