Pile Burning

On Tuesday the El Paso County Wildland Fire Management Team will be conducting pile burning in the northern part of the county. 

The sheriff’s office is alerting the public that they might see smoke from the affected areas. 

“The mitigation efforts are part of a long-range plan to improve the overall health of the forest by removing diseased and damaged trees and reducing fuels available to burn during wildland fires,” said PIO Natalie Sosa.
