If you happened to be near the Muny and Steinberg Skating Rink in Forest Park early Friday afternoon, you might've noticed a fire burning.

It turns out the fire was lit as part of a controlled burn conducted by the City Parks Department.

The burn was enacted as a way to inhibit invasive species, put nutrients back into the soil and remove dead vegetation.
