Slash pile burns planned Feb. 16 near Crystal Lakes

U.S. Forest Service firefighters plan to take advantage of existing and new snow accumulation to burn slash piles in the West Beaver and Crystal 4 project areas, located approximately three to seven miles west and northwest of the Crystal Lakes subdivision Saturday, as 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.
