(WTOL) - The sights and smell of smoke will soon rise from the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge.

The refuge is entering its springs prescribed fire season, which means they will do a controlled burn in the refuge.

The season will run through May 15.

The burn helps to improve the habitat and reduce the accumulation of fuels that lead to uncontrolled fires.
