ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Denali National Park and Preserve is planning to burn two debris piles over the next month and warns smoke may be visible from the 92-mile park road and from aircraft.

Ignition dates are planned between this coming Monday and Oct. 3, weather permitting. The piles, once lit, are expected to burn for up to three days.

Park staff plan to burn the piles at miles 53 and 91.

The debris is comprised of trees and brush removed as part of an effort to remove fire hazards from around buildings and along the road.
