EL PASO COUNTY — Fire crews are out burning slash piles that will be highly visible in and around Colorado Springs and northern El Paso County on Monday.

The Pikes Peak Ranger District will be burning piles at the Monument Fire Center, just three miles north of Monument.

Smoke from the fires will be visible from Monument, Palmer Lake, the US Air Force Academy and along the I-25 corridor.

This is a continuation of burning from the past few weeks, according to the U.S. Forest Service, which conducts these burns every winter and spring.
