In a collaborative effort, Unified Fire Authority and the Eagle Mountain City Streets Department have coordinated plans for a controlled burn scheduled for Monday, March 18.

The burn aims to address the accumulation of tumbleweeds along Eagle Mountain Blvd., specifically in the vicinity of Carriage Hill Dr. Beginning at 8 a.m., this scheduled operation is intended to efficiently dispose of the tumbleweeds.

Residents of Eagle Mountain are advised that they may observe smoke in the area during the designated burn period. Consequently, motorists travelling the area are urged to exercise caution and adhere to any relevant safety guidelines.

This initiative comes in the wake of a windstorm on Saturday, March 2, which resulted in the inundation of certain neighborhoods with thousands of tumbleweeds. The controlled burn serves as a strategic measure to manage the accumulated tumbleweeds and mitigate potential fire hazards in the area.

Through this proactive approach, the City and UFA aim to ensure the safety and well-being of residents while effectively managing tumbleweed concerns in Eagle Mountain.
