Upper Wagner Creek Road: Controlled Burn Planned on Wednesday, January 29th

Burn crews will be working on the 11,000 block of upper Wagner Creek Road tomorrow for community wildfire safety. This controlled burn is located about 5 miles up Wagner Creek Road. 

Potential Smoke Impact 
Smoke will be visible from Highway 99 above Talent. 
No roads or trails will be closed, however, some smoke impacts could occur around the upper reaches of Wagner Creek Road area and drainage. Smoke sensitive people should avoid the area, or if you live off upper Wagner Creek Road, close windows.

Why We Conduct Burns
A recent article in the Ashland Daily Tidings explains more about why we use 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.
