Prescribed burn scheduled for Agate Fossil Beds today

Posted: Updated:
The 165 acre Daemonelix Prescribed Fire at Agate Fossil Beds is planned to begin Saturday, May 3. Conditions are currently predicted to be within prescription, and ignition is planned to begin mid-morning. The burn will be closed to the public, but the media is invited to cover it.

There will be a briefing at the park at 9:30 a.m. followed by a test burn around 10:30 a.m. If conditions remain in prescription, the main fire will then be started. The location of the test burn depends on the direction of the wind.

If conditions change and the burn is postponed, a second media advisory will be e-mailed out, but you are still advised to call 308-668-2211, Saturday morning after 9:00 a.m., to confirm the prescribed fire is a go and to let us know to expect you.
