Update on Prescribed fire on the Krassel Ranger District

Update on Prescribed fire on the Krassel Ranger District.

May 3, 2021

Thank you for your support and patience during our first round of spring burning. The Krassel District is looking at another opportunity to complete burning this week.

Currently we are planning on implementing unit J in the Four-mile project area this Thursday (5/6/21). Unit J is located on the East side of the SF road near Poverty Flat Campground. In addition to unit J we are planning to complete unit A in the Four-mile project and Unit I and J in the Bald Hill project. Unit A is located South of the miners Peak trail between Cougar creek and the miners’ peak trail. Unit I and J are located between Quartz and Profile creek East of YP. (See maps below for reference)

We are evaluating the weather conditions, smoke dispersal, green up, and objectives daily. Timing and priority of burning may alter due to changing conditions.

Thank you again for your patience and support,

Priority units are Bald Hill units F,G and 4 mile unit G,A. Maps of the project areas can be found below. Units may be broken into smaller portions to aid in implementation. Ignitions should take 1-3 days for each project, with smoke and fire most likely present in the project area until the next significant precipitation.
