WINTHROP Unfavorable weather conditions have postponed spring prescribed burning today in the Methow Valley Ranger District.
The district had planned to do some under-burning on about 20 acres in the Fawn Creek area about 10 miles west of town.
However, the National Weather Service forecast strong, erratic winds this afternoon into tomorrow, and the ranger district wasn’t able to get smoke approval from the state Department of Natural Resources, Assistant Fire Management Officer Meg Trebon said.
“We have no plans to burn over the weekend at this point, and will reassess burn conditions for Monday or later next week,” she said.
Other areas slated for treatments this spring are northwest of town near Eightmile Creek, west of Twisp near Little Bridge Creek and west of Methow in the McFarland Creek and Squaw Creek drainages.
Tonasket Ranger District also plans prescribed burning treatments in the Mount Annie and Lyman Lake areas, both southeast of Tonasket; the Mutton area north of Conconully, and the North Flank project area near Havillah.
Area residents are warned they may see smoke during the treatments.
