The Krassel Ranger District burned 1,200 acres in the Bald Hill area, 7 miles west of Yellow Pine. Beginning October 20th, the burn was conducted over two days with the primary objective to restore fire-adapted ecosystems. This maintains desirable vegetation conditions and reduces potential negative effects from future wildland fire to both agency and adjacent private lands.
