Smoke to be Highly Visible from Pile Burning on Pole Mountain
(LARAMIE, Wyo.) January 16, 2013 –Laramie Ranger District fire crews will be burning slash piles in several highly visible areas on Wednesday, January 30. The most noticeable smoke will likely be from piles along Interstate 80 east of Laramie and along Highway 230 west of the town of Woods Landing.
The piles to be burned within eyesight of Interstate 80 are at the U.S. Forest Service Work Center, which is just east of the Summit Visitor Center. Also slated for ignition on the Pole Mountain unit of the Medicine Bow National Forest include piles at Pole Creek Group Campground and along Forest Road 700N.
Pole Creek Group Campground is near Happy Jack and Tie City recreation areas, which are open during winter months.
Prior to implementation, weather conditions will be closely monitored and the decision to ignite piles will only occur after fire managers determine that conditions such as snow cover are within established burn plan parameters for safe, effective fires.
Residents, travelers and the recreating public should be aware that smoke from these burns is expected and will often be visible.
All of the slash piles that will be burned were created primarily by bark beetle mitigation efforts in Wildland Urban Interface areas. For more information contact the Laramie Ranger District at 307-745-2300, visit our website at http://fs.usda.gov/mbr or follow the MBRTB on Twitter, @MBRNFsTBNG.
