ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK, Colo. (CBS4)– Even though wildfire danger is high surrounding Rocky Mountain National Park, don’t panic if you see smoke coming from that area on Monday. That’s because fire managers will be in the area of Upper Bear Lake Road.

That’s where they’ll be burning piles of dead vegetation. The burning is also being used to mitigate potential fire risk.
