Crews are continuing to hold, monitor and staff the project. No new ignitions will occur in spring or summer 2019, but prescribed fire already on the ground may continue to consume ground litter, such as duff, leaves and needles, and may continue to send smoke into the air from time to time. 500 acres have been treated so far.
This broadcast prescribed burn project is within a 1,074-acre unit on Thomas Mountain, south of Garner Valley, which is southeast of Idyllwild. The goal is to accomplish burning between 30 and 70 percent of the unit. The project is part of a larger effort to create defensible space between neighborhoods and wildland areas and perform ecological restoration in the San Jacinto Mountains.
