controlled burnASHLAND, Ore. — With cool weather, you can expect to see plumes of smoke in the air this week due to controlled burning.

Controlled burning starts Tuesday as part of the Ashland Forest Resiliency Stewardship Project. The city of Ashland says brush piles in the Ashland Watershed will be burned on Tuesday.

No trails will be closed, but officials say smoke may impact the Horn Gap area. If you’re headed to that area, be cautious of workers along the trails.

It’s expected to last throughout the week.
