The Wake Forest Fire Department (WFFD) will conduct a controlled burn exercise at 1047 N. Main St., Tuesday, Sept. 11, from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

During the exercise, a portion of Barnford Mill Road in the vicinity of North Main Street will be closed. The closure will impact the entrance and exit of The Meadows subdivision, but the Harris Road entrance and exit will not be affected.
