Burn Today

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.
