Cal-Fire Burning About 20 Acres East Of Whitmore

Cal-Fire will be conducting a prescribed burn in the Whitmore area over the next 2 days to reduce the future threat of wildfires. The burn is planned in the Latour State Forest about 13 miles east of Whitmore. Crews expect to burn about 20 acres starting Wednesday and will continue to operation on Thursday. The burn will only be lit if conditions allow, and smoke will likely be seen in the Whitmore area and on the valley floor.
