03.02.2021 Pile burning curtailed on Oak Knoll District this week

Klamath NF RX Burning 2020/2021 Prescribed Fire
News – 3/2/2021

Conditions have dried out enough this week that we have some potential for issues if we burn.  For this reason, it has been decided to curtail any pile burning this week.

Over the weekend, the snow level is predicted to drop down to 1800 feet.  Conditions will be re-evaluated next Monday to see if pile burning can resume.

In the Oak Knoll Division, 500 acres of piles have already been burned so far this winter.  Patrols will continue to monitor the previously ignited units this week.
