Released: 10/23/2017

With the weather forecast this week it is unlikely that there will be new ignition of pile units on the northern half of the forest.

Emigrant Creek Ranger District is going to attempt ignitions in Curry project area today.

You may continue to see smoke from pile units lit over the past couple weeks.

If the forest were to proceed with lighting additional units, it would occur in areas where previous ignitions have occurred. This will be weather dependent.
