Burning planned on Sandpoint Ranger district

October 4, 2021

The Sandpoint Ranger District of the Idaho Panhandle National Forests will be burning piles this week associated with the Old House fuels reduction project. The phase of the project currently being implemented consists of pile burning on seven acres of National Forest System Lands.

This parcel is approximately four miles northeast of Athol and directly adjacent to private property. Fuel reduction in the Wildland Urban Interface continues to be a focus of the prescribed fire program on the forest.

Local area residents can expect to see localized and relatively short-lived smoke impacts as burning is completed. Please see the project flyer and map for more information. Prescribed fire project information across the Idaho Panhandle National Forest can be viewed here.
