The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) reports that firefighters from the Upper Colorado River Interagency Fire Management Unit plan to ignite a 650-acre Battlements Prescribed Fire four miles northeast of Collbran on BLM-managed land. A smoke column will probably be visible from Collbran, as well as the I-70 corridor between DeBeque and New Castle. The burn will reduce hazardous build-up of fuels for wildfire and improve wildlife habitat.
