The Unified Fire Authority will be tentatively conducting a controlled burn on Pole Canyon Blvd. this Sunday, June 30, to eliminate the massive influx of tumbleweeds that rolled into the community last week following high winds.

Residents in the areas affected near White Hills may notice and smell smoke as the burn takes place. The controlled burn will remove the tumbleweeds, which pose fire hazards and could potentially obstruct roadways.

To ensure public safety and facilitate the controlled burn, the Eagle Mountain Streets department will assist UFA by closing Pole Canyon Blvd. from Pony Express Parkway to Lehi/Fairfield Road. This closure will be in effect from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. Commuters and residents are advised to plan alternative routes and avoid the area during these hours. While this controlled burn has been scheduled for Sunday, weather conditions may cause it to be rescheduled. Residents should be aware of possible changes based on weather conditions.

The community’s cooperation is appreciated to help the UFA conduct this burn safely and efficiently. For more information or any questions, residents are encouraged to contact the Eagle Mountain City offices.
