    In the coming weeks, the Pagosa Fire Protection District will be conducting a series of controlled burns in the area of the intersection of U.S. 160 and U.S. 84.

    These burns will take place to reduce combustible fuel levels in the area. There is no date set yet, but, burning will only occur when weather conditions allow. This includes weather, snow cover and smoke ventilation, and could take place at any time in the near future.

    There is no anticipated impact to the highways or travel. For more information on this project or others, please contact the district office at 731-4191.
