U.S. Forest Service Underburn Today

Release Date: Nov 18, 2010

Contact(s): Dominic Panno

The American River Ranger District will be conducting an underburn in the Sugar Pine Reservoir area today. The plan is to burn up to 38 acres of the 251 acre Unit 18 Underburn. Burning may continue tomorrow as weather permits. This underburn is designed to reduce hazardous fuels in the area and reduce the risk of future catastrophic wild fire.

There may be smoke across roads in the area so please stay alert for any signs warning of the activity, turn on headlights, and watch for personnel.

For questions about the burn program, and for current updates, please call the Foresthill Ranger Station (530) 367-2224.
