Due to concerns about COVID-19, Coeur d’Alene Fire Chief Kenny Gabriel has made the decision to cancel the upcoming planned prescribed burn on Tubbs Hill.

COVID-19 affects the respiratory system. The fire department has decided not to add smoke inhalation to the situation.

“The health of Tubbs Hill and the safety of our residents is a priority, and we will continue to work with the Parks Department, Idaho Department of Lands and the city committees to formulate a new plan moving forward,” Chief Gabriel said.
