Sonora, Ca — The Forest Service has announced that a second prescribed burn will begin Thursday within the Stanislaus National Forest.
Earlier this week, it was made public that beginning Thursday a 100 acre burn will occur two miles north of Arnold along Summit Level Rd.
Also starting tomorrow will be a 400 acre burn in the Wrights Creek area, four miles south of Long Barn. Smoke may be visible for many days along the Hwy 108 corridor.
The Forest Service notes that the benefits of a prescribed burn include promoting forest health, reducing flammable vegetation and protecting the public and firefighters.
