Fall and Winter Prescribed Burns Planned
Beginning this fall, fire personnel on the Klamath National Forest will be engaged in prescribed underburning and pile burning of forest vegetation. In order to meet future challenges in the most effective way possible, the U.S. Forest Service will continue to use these prescribed burning methods as tools to increase the safety of communities within the wildland urban interface, reduce build-up of hazardous fuels, improve resiliency and restore forest ecosystems.
All prescribed fire projects will be conducted in accordance with an approved burn plan to ensure the safety of people and property. Burn plans describe the specific conditions under which burns must be conducted including the weather, number of personnel, and opportunities to minimize smoke impacts.
Visitors are asked to avoid areas where prescribed burns are being conducted.
Some spur roads near the burn areas may be inaccessible during operations. As a result of the burns, some residents and visitors may see or smell smoke. They may also witness glowing from the fires at night. The fires will be carefully monitored. Local authorities will be notified prior to burn days and kept informed throughout burning operations.
