By now many of you have noticed the smell of smoke throughout our response area. This is due to the burn-out operations at the Beaver Fire near CSU Mountain Campus, and the prescribed burn happening up near Redfeather. Please bear with the USFS as they try to improve forest conditions using fire. It will be over soon, and we'll all be safer for it.
As always, if you see a clear column of smoke and you aren't sure if it might be the Beaver Fire or the prescribed burn, call 911.
Thanks & Adios, CJD
