Prescribed burn near Veterans Memorial Parkway.
Officials in Port St Lucie are looking to conduct a prescribed burn near Veterans Memorial Parkway sometime before Thanksgiving. The decision to burn will be made by the Florida Forest Service and will depend on the weather. About 20-acres near Veterans Memorial Park, west of Lyngate Drive, will be burned. The Florida Forest Service will also be doing some wildfire mitigation work at Peck Lake Park in Martin County this week, causing the park to close periodically.
