Officials on the northern portion of the Malheur National Forest, Blue Mountain and Prairie City ranger districts, may continue with prescribed burning operations later this week. Conditions, such as weather and potential smoke impacts, will be monitored closely throughout the week. Active project areas include Axe, Punch and Lunch on the Prairie City Ranger District and Cup (Galena area) on the Blue Mountain Ranger District. Both districts will continue monitoring units ignited over the past couple weeks.

On the southern portion of the forest, Emigrant Creek Ranger District officials will work through prescribed burning of brush piles at campgrounds and evaluate conditions for broadcast prescribed burning.
