Controlled Burn Planned on Wednesday, January 22nd on Timberlake Drive

Update: Burning went well on Timberlake, so Lomakatsi has added another burn on upper Tolman Creek Road in the 2000 block. Smoke is visible from many parts of town and residents in the Green Meadows and upper Tolman Creek Road neighborhoods may smell smoke. Smoke sensitive people should avoid the area, or if you live close by, close windows and stay inside today. 

On Wednesday, January 
22nd a controlled burn is planned near Timberlake Drive. Crews will light piles in the morning for the 17 acre controlled burn. Smoke could impact the areas around Timberlake and Merle Drive.  

Why We Conduct Burns
A recent article in the Ashland Daily Tidings explains more about why we used controlled burns. See 'Fighting Fire with Fire' for details.

Conditions for burning are good with a weather system that will move smoke away from town.  Controlled burns are a critical part of creating a safer, more resilient landscape and community in the face of increasing fire risk due to climate change and overgrown forests. Find out more about why we burn.
