Smoke could temporarily impact the city of Providence and can be seen throughout the county. To protect the public and firefighters, Providence Canyon Road and Trail may be temporarily closed for short periods of time during operations. This burn is under control and we ask that you not call dispatch to report. Thank you for your concern.
