A prescribed burn at Manuel Correllus State Forest created a dramatic sky behind the press box at Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School Thursday afternoon.

The burn took place near the Sharks baseball field, according to a text alert sent out by the town of Edgartown Thursday.

For the third day in a row, a prescribed burn will be done in Edgartown this time at Katama Airfield. “Please use caution if driving Herring Creek Road due to smoke/less visibility,” the alert states.
