TWISP The Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest is considering a prescribed burn this week in the Hunter Mountain area, located in the lower Methow Valley.
If weather conditions are favorable, the burning would begin today, Sept. 25, and end tomorrow, according to Meg Trebon with the Methow Valley Ranger District.
The forest has earmarked 450 acres on the north side for the burn, a treatment that’s meant to cut down on fuels to reduce the risk of wildfires.
