Forest Service plans pile burning near Jamestown, Lefthand Canyon, Big Elk Meadows, and Sky View Estates

BOULDER, Colo.—January 17, 2020—As conditions permit, U.S. Forest Service firefighters plan to burn slash piles on the Boulder Ranger District over the next week, focusing on the following areas:

  • St. Vrain Units 13d, 14a, 14b, 14c (11,400 hand piles) – 1 mile west of Big Elk Subdivision on Johnny Park Rd.
  • James Creek RFB Unit 8 (7,500 hand piles) – 0.5 mile south of Jamestown.
  • James Creek RFB Unit 13 (500 hand piles) – Lefthand Canyon, 1 mile east of Gold Lake and 5 miles west of U.S. 36.
  • James Creek Unit H1501 (1,500 hand piles) – Sky View Estates, near Ceran St. Vrain Trailhead, 2 miles east of Peak to Peak Highway on Overland Rd.

Smoke may be visible from Jamestown, Lefthand Canyon, Sky View Estates, Gold Lake, and Big Elk Meadows.

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.

If you know someone who would like to receive updates on pile burning activities on the Boulder Ranger District, have them send an e-mail to travis.a.mason-bushman@usda.gov and ask to be added to the Boulder Ranger District Prescribed Fire list.

For a complete list of locations where pile burning will occur this season, as well as updated accomplishments and photos, visit our InciWeb page at https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/4648.
