Seeing smoke around Mount Falcon Park today?

Don’t panic. Jefferson County Open Space natural resource crews are taking advantage of the snow-covered park to burn slash piles.

“It was an opportunity to burn the slash piles,” said Thea Rock, spokesperson for Jeffco Open Space. “The snow on the ground contains the fire.”

Burnings started Monday and ended Wednesday.

Rock said she didn’t know if any other burns are scheduled at this time.
