Mokelumne Hill Cemetery District Proscribed Burn

Mokelumne Hill, CA...California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) will be assisting the Mokelumne Hill Cemetery District with a hazardous fuel reduction burn located within the community of Mokelumne Hill, California on Wednesday, November 11th, 2020. The burn encompasses two burn units totaling approximately 7 acres of annual grass and oak woodland within the Mokelumne Hill Cemetery District. The purpose of the burn is to clear hazardous fuels and provide a cleared area on the site used for daily visitation and observance of memorial plots. The treatment area will also enhance the established Mokelumne Hill Fuelbreak, which aided in the protection of the community of Mokelumne Hill during the 2015 Butte Incident. Secondary benefits include training on live fire utilizing various techniques with multiple cooperating fire agencies stationed near the community of Mokelumne Hill.

The burn is anticipated to begin between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. and is expected to last 6 to 8 hours. The public may see smoke or fire during these times near the Highway 49, Highway 26 intersection, and the unincorporated community of Mokelumne Hill. Control lines and established roadways will be used to prevent the spread of fire from areas outside the burn unit. Firefighters will remain at scene until all hotspots are out.

Cooperating agencies assisting The Mokelumne Hill Cemetery District with the burn include CAL FIRE Tuolumne-Calaveras Unit, Calaveras County Air Pollution Control District and The Mokelumne Hill Fire Protection District.

    Did you read the press release? Does it sound like a good idea to bring a grinder to a cemetery?

    Take a look at all the burned trees East of big trees state park! That was “not” planned and is a eye sore to this day. Excuse after excuse for all that damage. My guess, 300-400 burned trees!

Mulching and chipping is a much better idea because we have all had enough smoke and sickness from it. At least it is not happening when most wildlife have offspring that can not leave the area as is normally done. Massive amounts of harvest and cleanup should be happening in the whole state.
