Prescribed Burn


A prescribed burn east of Payson will produce smoky conditions over the weekend.

The forest service will conduct a prescribed burn of up to 150 acres of vegetative debris piles Feb. 2 and 3 in the Yerba-Senta Butte area near Granite Dells about three miles east of Payson by the Rim Club and the Knolls, said Payson Ranger District Fire Prevention Officer, Gary Roberts.

"Prevailing winds from incoming weather systems are expected to draw moderate smoke into the Star Valley area," said Roberts.

Payson could also see some of the smoke from the burn.

The forest service plans to continue prescribed burns in the area as long as weather conditions permit, said Roberts.
