CHEMULT, Ore. -- The U.S. Forest Service conducted a controlled burn on Monday evening near Chemult. 

The burn area was adjacent to OR-138 on the south side, 5 miles west of Hwy 97 and .5 miles east of Crater Lake, according to the Forest Service.

An early morning inversion caused smoke to linger in the area but officials expect the smoke to clear out throughout the day.

The purpose of the burn was to reduce fire fuels in the area.
