If you see any smoke coming out of Boulder County, don't worry -- crews with the Boulder County Open Space are working on a prescribed burn in the area for much of the day.

Seventy-five firefighters are at the Heil Valley Ranch to burn hazardous fuels and protect the community from potentially extreme fires.

About 270 acres of land will be burned Wednesday. Heil Valley Ranch will reopen once fire personnel deem the park to be safe for visitors.
