Conditions are evaluated each day to determine if ignition will take place. Ignitions typically begin between 10 and 11 a.m. Wind, fuel moisture, staffing and the amount of snow cover all play a factor in where and whether ignition occurs.
Potential areas where slash burning could occur later this week include:
· Lee Hill Road and Peak View Drive (these areas contain small slash piles along the National Forest Boundary with private land).
· Yankee Hill (this area, located northwest of Central City, contains small slash piles)
· Gold Lake Area (there are multiple machine piles east of this lake)
