Prescribed fire planned Wednesday, Thursday in Greystone area
Firefighters with the Northwest Colorado Interagency Fire Management Unit anticipate ideal conditions Wednesday, April 25 and Thursday, April 26 to ignite a prescribed fire 5 miles southeast of Greystone in the Douglas Mountain area.
Smoke will be visible from Greystone, Colorado Highway 318 and U.S. Highway 40.
The objective of the 500-acre Teepee Prescribed Fire is to reduce the threat from wildland fires to area improvements and structures, control weeds and improve range conditions for wildlife and livestock. The fire is planned on BLM and private lands.
Firefighters will follow a detailed fire plan developed in advance with pre-determined parameters along with appropriate smoke permits. Weather and fuel moisture conditions will be closely monitored. The fire will only be ignited if conditions are ideal for a safe, effective burn.
The public is reminded to not call 911 or emergency services even though smoke may be visible. Most of the smoke will dissipate during the day, though some smoke may remain in valley bottoms as temperatures drop at night. Any carry-over smoke, is expected to be of short-term occurrence.
Prescribed fire smoke may affect your health. For more information, visit colorado.gov/pacific/cdphe/wood-smoke-and-health.
