Forest Service firefighters continue to burn piles on the Clear Creek Ranger District of the Arapaho National Forest, focusing on the Empire and Evergreen areas.

Pile burning may be conducted in the following locations over the next week:

• Blue Creek (3,000 hand piles) – Northwest of Empire along the U.S. 40 corridor.
• Echo Hills (1,300 hand piles) – 4 miles west of Evergreen, along Highway 103 near Echo Hills and Beaver Brook subdivisions.

Smoke may be visible from the Empire, Echo Hills, Beaver Brook and Evergreen areas.

Wind helps disperse smoke created during pile burning operations and snow helps keep the piles contained. Seeing flames and smoke, even after dark, is part of normal operations. This reduces fuels on the landscape under the safest conditions.

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. Smoke may be visible. 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.
