Published on April 25, 2013 at 11:23AM

The Beaver Ranger District of the Fishlake National Forest is preparing for two planned burns near the Beaver area. The first will burn 200-500 acres in Merchant Valley, located midway up Beaver Canyon, north of Highway 153. The second will be in the Little North Creek area, 20 miles north of Beaver and east of the I-15 corridor. The Little North Creek Burn will cover nearly 1000 acres. These planned burns are scheduled to continue through the month of June as weather permits. Possible travel restrictions could include temporary road closures during ignition phases of the project or until the area is safe for travel.
