The Video below is from NBC10 in Philadelphia reporting on the prescribed burn at the Penn State Forest in Burlington County on Monday night, February 29th. I am never quite sure how long the video will be available, but it should be available for several days after I post this article. I had some trouble with the embed code supplied with the video, so if you can not get the video to play, click on the link before the video and you should be able to see the video.
