INCIDENT UPDATED 6 DAYS AGO
On Thursday May 18, approximately 32 acres will be burned in the Little Mule Creek prescribed fire near Trinity Lake.
On Monday May 15 crews successfully burned approximately 350 acres in the Green Mountain prescribed fire operation, located approximately seven miles north of Redding near the confluence of the Squaw and Pit Arms of Shasta Lake. There may be still some smoke from interior portions that are burning and smoke may be visible from Redding. This burn was part of the Green Mountain Vegetation Management Project, which encompasses almost 41,000 acres of prescribed fire operations. Along with the management and reduction of hazardous fuels and making future fire suppression efforts safer, prescribed burns enhance habitat for species such as bald eagles, Shasta Salamanders, deer, elk and turkey. It can also improve recreational opportunities for Forest visitors by helping to maintain open space and vistas while reducing the chance of catastrophic fire close to popular recreation sites.
