Crews from Lands and Forests Consulting ignited 18.5 hectares of prairie grasses, part of the RARE Charitable Research Reserve along Blair Road in Cambridge. RARE in partnership with the University of Guelph planned the prescribed burn to mimic the natural rhythm of regeneration in prairie lands. The first step was to use vehicles to drive out wild life like the white tail deer in the first photo from the area to be burned. After fire breaks were established a flammable liquid was then dripped on to the high grasses causing a fast moving fire which was controlled by LFC. A centuries old Bur Oak tree was protected by fire breaks and a crew with water backpacks. After the burn was complete, a partial skeleton of a buck deer most likely killed by a car crossing Blair Rd at some time was found. THE DEER WAS NOT KILLED BY THE BURN.
