U.S. Forest Service fire crews will burn slash piles from 260 acres of vegetation thinning to the south of Sugarloaf, which sits on the southeastern end of the Big Bear Valley area. The project, which will only occur when conditions are safe for burning, is part of a larger effort to create defensible space between neighborhoods and wildland areas. Smoke and flame may be seen from a distance.
Dec. 17, 2018: Due to high humidity and fuel moisture, a test burn of the piles was unsuccessful Monday morning. Crews will re-evaluate for another day and instead plan to pile burn at the Fawnskin Fire Station on the north side of the lake on Tues., Dec. 18.
