*Update Antelope Prescribed Burn Cancelled April 19-23, 2021

Inyo RX Burning 2021 Prescribed Fire
Announcements – 4/16/2021

Update 4/19: Due to unfavorable weather conditions forecasted early in the week, The Mammoth Lakes Ranger District is cancelling our proposed understory prescribed fire scheduled for the week of April 19.   The increase in forecasted winds, low relative humidity and drying of fuels will put us out of prescription. We will continue to look for opportunities, conditions permitting, to restore fire to the ecosystem in the coming weeks.

The Mammoth Lakes Ranger District is planning the Antelope prescribed fire project (fuel and weather dependent) starting April 19 through April 23, 2021. Ignitions should be completed early enough in the week to give enough burn down time so the opening day of Fishing Season will not be affected. Project size: 581 acres. Project location:  East of HWY 395, South and West of Owens River Road, and 5.5 miles Northeast of Mammoth Lakes. Unit is located along Forest Road 3S06.
