Pile burning planned for Jan. 16 near Crystal Lakes

U.S. Forest Service firefighters plan to burn slash hand piles west of the Crystal Lakes subdivision. Another firefighting crew is planning to burn slash machine piles in West Beaver, approximately five miles northwest of Crystal Lake. Burning is planned for Jan. 16, but could continue through the week if conditions allow.

Conditions are evaluated each day of the burn to determine if ignition will take place. Wind, fuel moisture, staffing and snow cover all play a factor in where and whether ignition occurs.
