The Casper Mountain Fire Department is planning on burning the slash pile April 23rd. The column of smoke will be seen in Casper and surrounding areas. Please do NOT call 911. The slash pile will be smoking for days after the burn in complete. The Casper Mountain Fire Department will be monitoring it throughout this time.

Keep in mind that the area surrounding the burn is still covered in several inches of snow and little or no additional fuel is in the area of the burn. Additional moisture is also due in the area over the course of the next several days.
