USFS Pile Burning planned for today - Lake Silverwood and Heaps Peak

 Firefighters plan to burn slash and debris piles in two locations if favorable conditons permit on the Mountaintop Ranger District.

Date(s):
Feb 22, 2012 - Feb 24, 2012
Where: Near Lake Silverwood, firefighters will burn piles at the Cottonwood Fire Station just east of the Lake Silverwood entrance along SR138. Visitors to the State Recreation Area as well as motorists traveling along SR138 will see smoke during the day.

Heaps Peak Heliport Site along SR 18 east of Lake Arrowhead and west of Running Springs. Since this location is high in elevation, not only will motorists traveling along the highway see smoke, residents in both the local mountain communities and the foothill communities may see smoke.

Firefighters only ignite and burn slash and debris piles under favorable fuel and weather conditions and will terminate burning if conditions change during the project work.
