Controlled burns in Vail Wednesday

Vail Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL, Colorado ” Piles of dead timber and brush will be burned Wednesday in West Vail, Colorado north of Interstate 70. On Friday and Saturday, the work will move above Vermont Court on the south side of freeway.

The burning will only occur if weather conditions allow smoke to rise and disperse rather than settle on the freeway or in neighborhoods.

Smoke and flames may be visible from the freeway.

The dead trees and brush have been cut down in the past years to reduce the risk of wildfire spreading into the town.

Anyone who may have health problems that may be aggravated by smoke production, should notify Tom Talbot with Vail Fire and Emergency Services at 970-477-3509.
