Incident Description
The US Forest Service plans to use prescribed fire as a forest management tool during April and May on the Allegheny National Forest. We do not have exact dates yet. Our operations are weather dependent, and we will implement prescribed fires at the optimal time to achieve the best results. We will notify communities near the burn sites 24 to 48 hours before ignitions. To keep community members well informed we will post road signs, road guards, and live information on our social media accounts while burns are conducted. This spring, we plan to treat 800 acres spread across four project areas located in both the Marienville and Bradford Ranger Districts.
