Incident: Prescribed Fire Pile Burning 2017/2018 Prescribed Fire
Released: 12/9/2016

GRANBY, Colo – (Dec. 9, 2016) Firefighters could begin burning slash piles on National Forest lands near Lake Granby this week as conditions allow. Depending on snow and smoke dispersion conditions, burning could occur in the Trail Creek Project, along County Road 41 and near the Bussey Hills Subdivision. This project was part of the Arapaho National Recreation Area Forest Health Project.

Conditions are evaluated each day to determine if ignition will take place. Ignitions are generally expected to begin after 10 a.m. and will cease several hours before sunset. Smoke may be visible. Precipitation, wind, temperature, fuel moisture and staffing all play a part in when and whether ignition occurs. Firefighters monitor the area after burning is complete. Public and firefighter safety is always the number one priority in burning operations.
