BRYCE CANYON NATIONAL PARK — Park officials have announced plans to burn debris piles created from recent fuel reduction treatment projects as soon as Monday.

The burns will take place at Rainbow Point, in park employee housing areas and the park maintenance area. The debris will be burned only when specific weather conditions allow for acceptable smoke dispersal and little chance of fire to spread.

Smoke from the burns may be visible to park visitors and local residents but should produce only minor, localized impacts. The piles may smolder for a few days after ignition, but fire staff will closely monitor them until declared out.

Additional information can be obtained by calling the park’s information line at 435-834-5322.
