Pile Burns Continue in Plumas County

Pile-burning projects are set to continue in the Feather River Ranger district today. The burns will begin near the Brush Creek Work Center and Upper Bald Rock Road. Around 19 acres of piles are planned to be treated to reduce fuels in the area.

Smoke is expected to be visible but not have long-term impacts on communities. You can expect brief light smoke impacts near the Oro-Quincy Highway and Brush Creek Road above Berry Creek.
Visibility on roads in the project area may be reduced, especially early morning and late evening, as smoke settles. If in the area, drive with caution.

Ignitions may occur through Thursday as conditions allow, and firefighters will monitor the burns and weather conditions until the fires are out.

Last week pile burns in the Mt Hough ranger district completed 1 acre of the pile on the landings in Greenhorn and about half of the piles in Butterfly valley.
