Prescribed Burns to Generate Smoke in Lassen Volcanic National Park


Expect to see smoke over the next three days from fall-prescribed burns in the Lassen Volcanic National Park. As conditions permit, park fire staff will conduct a prescription fire in the Manzanita Lake area tomorrow, Wednesday, Nov. 1st.
Smoke is expected to be visible in the surrounding areas for up to 3 days and possibly up to two weeks.

This prescribed fire is part of ongoing treatments in reducing forest fuels to restore forest health within the Northwest Gateway Project area.

Park officials say you can expect temporary traffic control at the park entrance.

You can visit the National Park Service’s website for more details on the Northwest Gateway Project.
