The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service held two controlled burns at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge on March 26th, 2022. The first burn began about 10am just south of Adams City High School along Quebec Parkway. The second burn began about 2pm near E. 80th Ave. and Wildlife Drive in the northeast section of the Refuge. Smoke from the burns could be seen from around the metro area. The USFWS uses controlled burns to reduce wildfire risk to surrounding communities, restore nesting habitat and control invasive weeds. Nationally, the Service conducts about 300,000 burns a year. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Wildland Fire Management, U.S. Forest Service, Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control James Peak Module, Arvada Fire Protection District and Hygiene Fire Protection District assisted with the burns.
