Cleanup of wildfire damage has begun at Chadron State Park in northwestern Nebraska.

Mike Groenewold with the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says that cleanup will continue through the end of February.

The project will consist of felling and cutting up trees that were damaged in a wildfire last August that burned more than 91 square miles in the region.

Games and Parks crews will be piling the trees and burning them daily as weather permits. No piles will be lit on weekends, but officials warn that area residents may see smoke coming from Chadron State Park due to smoldering piles.
