Fort Leavenworth Fire and Emergency Services Crew Chief Capt. Trent Strayer walks a drip torch along a line of grass to ignite part of a field during a prescribed burn April 15 south of Hunt Lodge. The prescribed burn improves warm-season grasses, reduces erosion, kills woody vegetation, makes the area more visible, removes accumulated fuel to lesson wildfire risk, and improves wildlife habitat.
