ST. CLOUD -- Don't be alarmed if you are driving along I-94 and you see smoke coming from a grass fire.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation will be conducting prescribed burns along I-94 between St. Cloud and Sauk Centre until mid-May.

Other burns will take place along the Lake Wobegon Trail and by the St. Cloud Travel Information Center located on Highway 10.

The burns will be performed by trained crews and will help grow the native grasses and wildflowers by controlling weed growth.
