U.S. Forest Service fire crews will continue burning operations on the Baldwin Lake project on Wed. Feb. 13. Burning may continue through Thurs. Feb. 14.
The project consists of slash piles from 742 acres of vegetation thinning near the Lake Williams community on the east end of Big Bear Valley. About 106 acres have already been completed. 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.
