Lassen National Forest updates fall-prescribed burn projects, which will treat nearly 3000 acres of piles across all three districts.
Forest officials say crews on the Eagle Lake Ranger District successfully burned 52 acres on the southeast side of Diamond Mountain on Wednesday. Crews yesterday continued to monitor the area with plans to begin more ignitions as the weather meets the right conditions.
Crews in the Almanor Ranger District will continue to monitor its projects and will also continue with prescribed burning when weather conditions allow.
To inform you where these operations occur, The Forest Service has signs posted on roads likely to be affected.
Smoke may linger from these initial burns for several days; you can check for any smoke impacts in your area at www.airnow.gov
