(Neb.)-Officials Burn Slash Piles At Chadron State Park
(CHADRON)-Nebraska Game And Parks officials will be burning slash piles at Chadron State Park on Monday and Tuesday of this week as conditions allow. The burns will be monitored to ensure that they are kept contained and are completely "out."
Officials say thinning and reducing hazardous fuel accumulation and build-up on the ground is an important way to reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfire across the landscape.
As a result of the burning slash piles, smoke may be visible from Highway 385 and 20, Chadron State Park, and areas adjacent to Forest Service lands south of Chadron.
