Four Ashland Area Controlled Burns Set For April 5

On Tuesday, April 5th, four controlled burns will be managed for improved community wildfire safety. Favorable weather conditions make smoke less likely to impact the community, however, the controlled burns will be close to neighborhoods and parks so be advised if you see or smell smoke.

  • Siskiyou Mountain Park: Trails with potential smoke impact include White Rabbit, Upper Mike Uhtoff, Queen of Hearts and Looking Glass. In the evening hours, neighborhoods around Walker Avenue, Park Street,Timberline Terrace and Pinecrest Terrace could be impacted by smoke.
  • Park Street: Smoke could impact homes near upper Park Street.
  • Lithia Park Hillside: Ashland Parks and Recreation Commission will manage a pile burn on the Lithia Park Hillside. Smoke may impact trails around Lithia hillside, south Pioneer Street and Glenview Drive.
  • Ashland Mine Road: This burn is near West Ashland and with favorable conditions, smoke is not expected to impact neighborhoods other than properties right near 1900 block of Ashland Mine Road.

Smoke may be visible from parts of town during the day if clearing allows.
