A prescribed burn planned at Crater Lake National Park this week has been postponed because of unfavorable wind and smoke forecasts, according to a press release from the National Park Service.
Fire managers will continue to monitor weather, fuels and smoke forecasts and may implement the fire when winds are more favorable for controlling the fire and less likely to bring smoke to Klamath Falls.
The 1,350-acre Phoenix fire would be set and monitored in the northeast area of the park. All park roads and trails are expected to remain open during the burn.
