Expect Smoke Near La Porte and Quincy; Fall-RX Burns Continues in the Plumas National Forest


Prescribed burning is set to resume in the Feather River Ranger District, with continued efforts on the Type 2 Prescribed Burn near Little Grass Valley Reservoir.

The trail along the lake between Pancake Beach Day Use Area and Black Rock Campground will remain closed; while others will be open, you are asked to avoid the areas, including Black Rock and Horse Camp campgrounds and Maidu Boat Ramp and Day Use Area.

Approximately 70 acres near Butterfly Valley Road will be treated in the Mount Hough Ranger District. The Plumas Forest Service says you will see increased firefighter activity and smoke, reducing your visibility on the roadways near the project area. It is not expected to have significant long-term impacts on nearby communities.

Operations in the Beckwourth Ranger District are paused until conditions improve, with ongoing monitoring and preparation for treatment in progress.

The forests service adds that Firefighters will assess weather conditions and stop burning if they become unfavorable.
