Forest Service fields complaints, cites lack of wind for problems
LEOPOLD - Dense smoke from prescribed Forest Service burning in the Mogan Ridge area blanketed areas of the county in dense smoke Tuesday and Wednesday, sending several Perry Central students to the nurse's station and postponing the start of classes Thursday.
Hoosier National Forest officials apologized for the problem, which they said occurred when breezes forecast for Tuesday evening and night failed to materialize, preventing smoke from dispersing.
