DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Des Moines parks officials say they are planning on setting controlled fires in some city parks to burn off old vegetation.

The fires are planned for Wednesday at Ewing Park, along the Gay Lea Wilson Trail and Meredith Trail and on Thursday at Gray's Lake Park, Glendale Cemetery and Ewing Park.

Des Moines Parks and Recreation officials say in a statement released Wednesday that the fires will be closely watched by workers and will be set only if weather conditions permit.
