Fort Carson to conduct prescribed burns through Dec. 31

FORT CARSON, Colo. -- Authorities say they'll be conducting prescribed burns on Fort Carson training areas intermittently through the end of the year to limit the potential for wildland fires.

Smoke from the burns may be visible along the I-25 and Highway 115 corridors from Colorado Springs to Pueblo, according to the Fort Carson Public Affairs Office.

The burns, which are scheduled to begin this week, aim to reduce heavy vegetation that could potentially lead to wildfires. They'll be conducted by the Directorates of Emergency Services and Public Works Conservation Branch.

  1. I wonder how soon we will hear about the first “prescribed burn” (previously known as “controlled burns” before they regularly became uncontrolled) there that has suddenly become “unprescribed”?
