Bureau of Land Management (BLM) West Desert District plans to conduct a prescribed burn of 1,205 acres in the Reservation Ridge area between late-October and mid-November, when conditions allow. The project area is located in Utah County, approximately 42 miles east of Spanish Fork on Highway 6. “In the last 16 years, over one million acres of BLM-managed lands in Utah have been treated through the implementation of hazardous fuels reduction projects,” said BLM West Desert District Manager Kevin Oliver. “The BLM is committed to managing wildfire risks by creating fire-resilient landscapes which help our firefighters be successful and safe.” In 2018, 486,063 acres of land in Utah burned in wildfires.
