Boulder Fire in conjunction with Open Space and Mountain Parks will be conducting prescribed fire operations today (5/9/18) in the area of south Shanahan, off of Hardscrabble Drive. This is a continuation of an ongoing fuels management project in the area. The scope of the project is to continue black lining the perimeter of a larger unit. Smok will be visible in the area through out most of the day. Ignitions will not begin until 10:00 am and will stop by 4:00 pm. Fire department staff will remain on scene until the fire is completely extinguished. The area burned will only be 2 to 5 acres. Ignitions will only occur if all safety, environmental and resource needs are met within the prescribed fire burn plan. A state smoke management permit has been issued for this project.
