Prescribed Burn Proceeds Along Fuel Break

Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — CAL Fire is continuing with prescribed burn operations in Tuolumne County this week.

Monday night through Wednesday on the Mt. Havalia Vegetation Management Plan, officials hope to burn 25 acres of grass and oak woodland understory. Smoke from this project may be visible in the Tuolumne area. As earlier reported, firefighters were busy on the site last week.

The prescribed burn is intended to provide protection from wildland fire to the town of Tuolumne by maintaining the strategic fuel break. It will also improve range conditions by reducing star thistle and other noxious weeds.
