If conditions remain favorable early next week, firefighters will begin pile burning on the Crooked River National Grassland in the area of the Grandview Fire Roadside Danger Tree Removal project.
Today, BLM firefighters plan to begin igniting 510 acres of hand piles roughly 8 miles SE of Alfalfa, near George Millican Rd. If crews don't complete all 510 acres today they will continue burning this week as conditions are favorable. No trail/road closures are expected.
