Controlled Burn Planned West of Fort Collins On Thursday – Please Do Not Call 911

Smoke might be visible west of Fort Collins on Thursday, near Horsetooth Mountain. The Larimer County Natural Resources Department, and the Emergency Services Department, will burn slash piles at Horsetooth Mountain Open Space on Thursday, February 16.

Please do not call 911.

Meegan Flenniken, Larimer County News Release

The pile burns are part of an on-going wildfire mitigation/forest health project on parks and open space properties, involving mechanical thinning, hand piling tree limbs and pile burning. Dozens of large slash piles are located on Horsetooth Mountain from previous forest thinning efforts. Burning piles is the most cost effective method of reducing these visual impacts and improving plant diversity.
