Hat Creek and another six in the parking lot adjust their waders

Controlled Burns Scheduled
SUSANVILLE — Now that spring weather conditions allow for safe
and effective burning, Lassen National Forest fire officials are
implementing prescribed burning projects. These initiatives are
designed to reduce the threat and severity of catastrophic fires
across the landscape by removing highly flammable vegetation
from the forest.
“Our goal is to reduce wildfire risk and intensity by safely
reducing fuels when weather and air quality conditions allow,”
said Almanor Ranger District Fuels Technician Eric Kronner.
“This will help prevent the spread of a wildfire during the
warm, dry summer months.”
The following burns in the Intermountain area tentatively
• South Station Timber Sale - Hat Creek Ranger District plans to
underburn 500 to 600 acres near Hole-in-the- Ground and the
Juniper Hole area. Smoke will be visible from Highways 44 and 89
and from the communities of Old Station and Hat Creek.
This burn will take place over the course of several days as
• Pittville Underburn – Hat Creek Ranger District will burn
approximately 300 acres near the site of a former timber sale
south of Pittville. Smoke may be visible from the communities of
Fall River Mills, McArthur, and Pittville.
Burning could continue throughout the Spring, as long as air
temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and direction, and
fuel moisture remain within desired ranges. Notices and signs
will be posted along major roadways during active burn
operations and while smoke remains.
“We’re taking precautions to minimize the amount of smoke in the
air,” said Eagle Lake District Fuels Officer Chuck Lewis. “The
treatment areas have already been mechanically thinned, which
should reduce smoke emissions. We’ll only be burning during
permissive burn days. Plus, we coordinate with other public
agencies and industrial landowners in the region on planned burn
days to limit the amount of smoke in the air at any one time.”
The prescribed burn program is designed to:
• Reduce hazardous fuels – including dead and fallen trees,dead
branches, brush, and ladder fuels – that can feed wildfires.
