[ARCHIVED] Slash Piles On Emerald Expected To Be Burned Next Week

The Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue (SSFR) in conjunction with Parks & Community Services and Routt County Environmental Services will be burning some of the remaining slash piles on Emerald Mountain starting as early as Tuesday, April 11, weather and conditions permitting.  

The public should expect to see smoke during this process and understand that Routt County Dispatch has been made aware of the operation.  Once started, the burn process under the supervision of SSFR is expected to continue for several days in the Prayer Flag Meadow area and could possibly run through the weekend. 

The upcoming slash pile operation follows an earlier burn that occurred in the same area this winter.  If the public has additional questions or needs more information on the burn operation, please contact Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue at (970) 879-7170 between 8am-5pm.
