Fire crews with Grayback Forestry and the U.S Forest Service continued an Ashland Forest Resiliency Project controlled burn off of the Ashland Loop Road above Lithia Park on Friday. There were 48 personnel working the 95-acre burn. Areas directly affected by the burn or smoke include the west side of the Ashland Loop Road (Forest Road 2060) from the swimming reservoir at Granite Street up to Horn Gap, according to the resiliency project's website. Operations began Thursday and are expected to continue through Monday, May 1.

What a lens! Jamie’s photography work is a treasure. Pensive, thoughtful, well curated— thank you for being in the thick of this challenging work…


Agree 100%. At least K95/94. When I was working burns we used a wet bandanna. More than nothing but not enough.


great photos

It's painful to see all those fire workers without protective breathing devices.
