There is a controlled burn scheduled to begin today at the Alderwood Subdivision project (4th street, between Easy and Ransom). John Rapraeger Construction will be burning debris for an estimated three to four days. The burn will be in a pit, fans will be used to keep the heat intense and to help minimize the production of smoke. Rapraeger will also be using equipment to feed the piles into the burn pit.
Rapraeger has secured a burn permit from the Fire Chief and the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ).
