Forest Service firefighters continue to burn piles on the Boulder Ranger District

Forest Service firefighters continue to burn piles on the Boulder Ranger District of the Roosevelt National Forest, focusing on Jamestown, Lefthand Canyon, Gold Hill, Cal-Wood Ranch, and Sky View Estates.

 

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

 

  • James Creek RFB Unit 1 (800 hand piles) – 1.5 miles northwest of Jamestown, west of County Road 87.
  • James Creek RFB Unit 6,7,8 (7,500 hand piles) – 0.5 mile south of Jamestown.
  • James Creek RFB Unit 10 (3,250 hand piles) – Lefthand Canyon, 2 miles east of Peak to Peak Highway on Highway 52.
  • James Creek RFB Unit 17 (1,425 hand piles) – 0.5 mile north of Cal-Wood Ranch.
  • Sugarloaf Unit 4 (475 hand piles) – 1.75 miles west of Gold Hill on County Road 52.

 

Smoke may be visible from Jamestown, Lefthand Canyon, Gold Hill, Cal-Wood Ranch, and Sky View Estates.

 

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.
