Arnold, CA…The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE), in cooperation with Sierra Pacific Industries, will be conducting a prescribed burn on the South Park Vegetation Management Plan near the southern boundary of Big Trees State Park. This project is located east of the community of Arnold.
This prescribed burn is designed to reduce ground level fuels, creating a more fire resilient environment as well as improving forest health.
Prescribed burning will commence Tuesday, February 25th at 9:00 A.M. and will continue through the day Thursday, February 27th as conditions allow. Burning will primarily be conducted during daylight hours; however, some fire activity may be visible at night and smoke may be present for several days following.
Resources assigned to the prescribed burn will consist of fire engines and hand crews.
