There is a controlled burn going on at the post near the West Fort Hood area on today, a base official confirmed.

It is common for Fort Hood to do controlled burns on training ranges in the winter. They are prone to grass fires in the summer time.

Yes our good neighbors on Fort Hood routinely disregard the safety of surrounding communities and burn whenever they feel like it. In spite of the fact every county adjacent to the installation has a burn ban in effect.
