Lake Havasu City, Ariz. – The Bureau of Land Management’s Colorado River District will conduct prescribed burning near Parker, Arizona, between November and March, as weather and fuel conditions allow. The burn area is located seven miles northeast of Parker and one-half mile west of Parker Dam Road near Crossroads, on the California side of the Colorado River.

The removal and prescribed burning of vegetation piles helps reduce the threat and spread of wildfires and improves access in these areas for recreation and emergency response. Prescribed burning may occur multiple times, as conditions allow, to eliminate piles of vegetation accumulated during the maintenance and creation of fuel breaks.

To ensure the safety of residents and visitors, BLM fire management personnel will ignite the piles when weather conditions are conducive to burning. Impacts from smoke will be monitored and are expected to be minimal.

Access to the burned areas may be temporarily restricted to provide for public safety.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land located primarily in 12 western states, including Alaska, on

behalf of the American people. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the
nation. Our mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment
of present and future generations.
