BEND, OR -- Deschutes National Forest fuels specialists expect to begin pile burning this week, and continue the work through the next few months. All operations are weather dependent. Piles may smolder, burn and produce smoke for several days after ignition; units are monitored by firefighters until declared out. 

 

Forestry officials say piles are conentrations of leftover materials associated with previous vegetation management activies, which are designed to reduce hazardous fuels that can burn during summer wildfires.
