Burning slash piles on Tunnel Hill continues

WINTER PARK – Conditions are favorable to allow firefighters to continue burning slash piles on Tunnel Hill today, Nov. 12. Ignitions are generally expected to begin after 10 a.m. and will cease several hours before sunset. Smoke and flames may be visible from various areas in the Fraser Valley. Trail users and hunters are asked to avoid this area. Precipitation, wind, temperature, fuel moisture and staffing all play a part in when and whether ignition occurs.

Burning will continue through the rest of the week as conditions allow. More information on this project as well as updated maps and photographs can be found at: http://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/3746/

If you know of anyone else who would like to receive these updates, please have them email SRDupdates@fs.fed.us subject line TUNNEL HILL.
