The burn area is located above the intersection of Rattlesnake Drive and Lolo Street and smoke may be visible in the Rattlesnake Valley and beyond.
The slash piles were created by a forest-thinning project that wrapped up last year.
Missoula Parks and Recreation notes the burning will only happen "if suitable fuel, weather, and air quality conditions exist."
