GRAND COUNTY, Colorado – The Bureau of Land Management Kremmling Field Office is planning a prescribed fire sometime in the next few weeks if weather conditions are favorable. Fire officials expect to burn up to 500 acres in sagebrush and pinion/juniper trees to improve wildlife habitat and reduce hazardous fuels on BLM managed land.

The burn is 20 miles southwest of Kremmling, one mile southwest of Radium. Portions of the burn are located in Eagle and Grand counties near Dry Gulch Spring off the Trough Road.

The prescribed fire project addresses habitat improvement for wildlife and reducing the fuel loads, helping reduce the risk of large unwanted wildfires.

The burns will only be initiated if conditions are ideal for safe and effective fires. For more information call the Kremmling Field Office at 970-724-3000.
