Slash Pile Burning 2022 Prescribed Fire
News – 12/12/2016

GILPIN COUNTY, Colo. (Dec. 12) – Firefighters will take advantage of winter conditions this week to burn slash piles near Lump Gulch Road, approximately 5 miles west of the Peak to Peak Highway. Smoke may be visible.

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. 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.
