WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — If you live near UNCW and saw smoke in the air, no need to be alarmed. The school is working with the Division of Forest Resources on a prescribed burn in the pine forest on campus.

Officials say they have been waiting for good weather conditions in order to burn safely.

The burn is important to the forest because it eliminates debris that stops new plants from growing.

Crews expect to have 25 acres of the controlled burn completed today.
