MADRAS, OR -- Fire managers on the Crooked River National Grassland plan to take advantage of warm, drier weather to conduct two prescribed burns, beginning Monday.

 

The Juniper Springs burn is about seven miles south of Madras, east of Highway 26. The West Mountain View project is six miles west of Madras. They'll burn downed juniper in an effort to reduce hazardous fuel buildups, as well as improve winter range for big game animals. 

 

Officials expect the burns will take two days to complete and smoke will be visible for several days. All prescribed burns are dependent on appropriate weather conditions and fuel moisture.
