ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – Kelly Park will undergo a 40-acre prescribed burn Wednesday morning, according to the Orange County Parks and Recreation Division.

The park will remain open for business until it reaches capacity, the division said. According to a news release, land managers will take advantage of a narrow range of weather conditions to conduct the burn, meeting prescribed metrics for ground moisture, humidity, wind speed, wind direction and the atmosphere’s ability to clear the area of smoke.
