Lassen Volcanic National Park Continues RX Burns at Headquarters


Lassen Volcanic National Park plans to continue prescribed fire projects in the Mineral Headquarters area through this month.

The projects aim to reduce fuel build-up and mimic historical fire activity for vegetation preservation. The area near park buildings and residential sites has undergone manual thinning to enhance fire resilience. In recent years, approximately 95% of the project area has undergone manual thinning to create a more fire-resistant and resilient fuel landscape. Prescribed fires in this area were last completed nearly a decade ago, in 2016. The park service says this effort help protect infrastructure and other sensitive resources.
