Burn bosses will check weather conditions to ensure burns happen under conditions optimal for smoke to move away from town, though citizens may smell light smoke at times.
Controlled burns under safe conditions reduce the risk of severe summer wildfires and prolonged, dense smoke and protect our forests, water supply, economy, and community. Visit ashlandwatershed.org for updates.
