BLM Plans Brush Burning- Really

Though it may seem impossible in this soggy weather, some prescribed burns west of Redding are being planned by the Bureau of Land Management over the next couple of weeks. As weather and fuel conditions allow, BLM crews will be burning 5 to 10 acres of brush during each burn day. The piles are from previous fuel reduction projects in areas including the Swasey Recreation Area, Middle Creek Trail, China Gulch Road and the Pioneer Baby Grove. The BLM hopes to complete the burns by January 20th.
