This week, you may see smoke above the Janesville area as the Plumas National Forest will be burning piles to prep the area for planting this spring. A total of 75 acres is planned for the burn within the moonlight burn scar.
Additionally, fire crews will plan to burn more piles near Magalia on the Feather River Ranger District from the Brush Creek to Bald Rock Trailhead today and tomorrow, as well as near Feather Falls.
Smoke will be seen from Brush Creek, Berry Creek, and Magalia, as well as in Indian Valley, Janesville, and Susanville.
As the smoke settles, visibility may be reduced if you are on nearby roads in the project areas, especially in the early morning and late evening. If you are driving in the area, use caution.
Firefighters will monitor conditions and the burning piles until the fires are out.
