The Fishlake National Forest and Beaver Ranger District Fire and Fuels personnel are planning to implement the Merchant Valley Prescribed Burn Project starting March 24 through May 31. The fire project is located approximately 10 miles up Beaver Canyon in the Merchant Valley area, north of highway 153, in Beaver County. The project is approximately 3000 acres. The entire 3000 acres will not be burned at one time; smaller sections will be treated as conditions permit. To provide for the safety of the public and fire personnel, temporary travel restrictions may be in place on roads and trails in the project area during burning operations.
