SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- The Willamalane Park and Recreation District and the Oregon Department of Forestry are teaming up this week for a controlled burn in the Thurston Hills area.

Starting Monday and lasting through Friday, April 5, Willamalane and ODF will begin clearing brush and burning piles of wood debris.

The controlled burn is an effort to cut down on hazardous forest fire fuel loads through burning at locations in the Thurston Hills Natural Area.

The work will run from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day and is being funded by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management through their Wildland Urban Interface Community Fire Assistance Program.

The two organizations say area residents should be assured that they are not witnessing an emergency.

The controlled burn could be delayed due to inclement weather.
