Controlled Burn Planned in Upper Watershed

Ashland Forest Resiliency(AFR) is conducting a controlled burn at high elevation off USFS 2080 road near Corp Camp Road. Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest is managing the first of several controlled burns planned for improved watershed health and reduced risk for our communityís drinking water. Wind directions favors smoke moving away from town and into the upper atmosphere. Smoke could be visible from parts of Interstate 5 and drifting smoke may impact the 2080 road and trails near the burn area. See the burn location on the map

Our primary objective when using prescribed fire is the safety and well-being of the community and fire crews. Learn more about AFRís proactive fire planning.

Please sign up for our non-emergency burn alerts, particularly for smoke sensitive people who need to take precautions.
