CAÑON CITY, Colo. — The Bureau of Land Management is preparing to conduct pile burns in nine locations this winter.
Pile burns could occur as early as November 2022 and could continue through April 2023, depending on weather and fuel moisture conditions. Smoke from the pile burns will be visible throughout the day of the burn, mostly during the warmest part of the day. With cooler temperatures in the evening, smoke may linger and accumulate in low-lying areas.
Notifications of confirmed burns will be published on the BLM Colorado Fire facebook and twitter accounts, which can be found at:
