English Point and Canfield Mountain Pile Burning

The Coeur d’Alene River Ranger District of the Idaho Panhandle National Forests will be burning piles associated with the Kootenai Fuel Reduction Project. Interagency crews will be working to burn slash piles on Canfield Mountain and English Point from over 600 acres of pruning, thinning, and brushing work completed earlier this year. There are other smaller prescribed fire units north Rose Lake, and along the southeast side of Hayden Lake. Hazardous fuels reduction in the Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) comprises National Forest System lands adjacent to private property and the protection of emergency services communication infrastructure on Canfield Butte.

Hunters: if you see piles in the area, know that your hunt may be inadvertently disturbed by prescribed fire activity. This burning activity should have minimal, localized smoke impacts, and will not interfere with travel on-Forest. Smoke will be highly visible from Coeur d’Alene, especially near Canfield Mountain and the English Point Recreation Area.

The Kootenai Fuel Reduction project is a multi-year project that will treat approximately 3,000 acres in the WUI of Kootenai County. Fuel reduction work helps limit the spread of uncontrolled wildfires that can threaten values such as property and structures on both public and private land.
