The Los Alamos County Parks Division and the Santa Fe National Forest will continue maintenance burning in Bayo Canyon from Jan. 27 through 31.

Burning is set to begin on Jan.27 around 9 a.m., depending on the ventilation conditions. Burning will continue as conditions permit through Saturday.

About 350 piles were burned last week. Another 300 piles are located in Bayo Canyon between Barranca and North Mesas below Venado, El Conejo, Kachina, Obsidian Loop, and Deer Trail.

After Saturday, no additional burning will take place until early March.
