Forest burning begins here
October 10, 2019
GARFIELD COUNTY–Fire management officials on the Pomeroy Ranger District are planning to implement a prescribed burn on Triple Ridge (4302-040 road) October 7, 2019.
The prescribed burn activities will consist of activity slash burning in four timber sale units from the North Park Timber Sale. The objective of the burn is to reduce activity fuel loading and associated fire hazard.
Information about this prescribed burn is available on the Umatilla National Forest's prescribed fire interactive map at https://tinyurl.com/y8b433th. The interactive map allows the user to zoom in on certain areas and click on a burn unit for more information (such as acreage, status, etc).
When burning operations begin the interactive map will be updated to display which burn units are actively burning.
Maps of the proposed prescribed burns are also located on InciWeb at http://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/5808/.
