Several Controlled Burns In Progress This Week
Fire managers are planning to conduct pile burning on the Moraine Park Dump, North side of Deer Mountain and East Road Corridor from Deer Junction up Trail Ridge and down to Old Fall river road. Ignition of the piles is scheduled to begin on Monday February 6th at approximately 10:30 am if weather and smoke dispersal conditions permit. Burning will continue through the week of February 6th – 10th. There will be approximately 8 ROMO employees participating in the burn. Depending on snow and smoke dispersal conditions, the module may burn in other areas of the park to maximize production.
Please contact Park Dispatch at 586-1204 if you have any questions.
