The BIA Southern Ute Agency will be conducting a second Prescribed/Pile Burn within the Sundance Ceremonial Grounds beginning the week of February 12, 2024, when favorable conditions are present. Ignition is planned to begin at 10:00 am. Fire personnel will monitor and patrol the burn area throughout the week.
The Legal Description for the burn is Township 33N, Range 7W, Section 5. The purpose of the burn is to dispose of accumulated slash that was not burned previously.
Smoke will be visible from Ignacio, CO, and surrounding areas. Drivers are encouraged to use caution in the event smoke settles into the road corridor and for vehicles entering/leaving the area.
