Camptonville, CA Apr. 30, 2010 - Approximately 250 acres on the Yuba River Ranger District in the Tahoe National Forest are scheduled for underburning this spring. These burns are located at Forest Service Administrative Sites near Bullards Bar Work Center in Yuba County (75 acres) and Camptonville Work Center in Yuba County (4 acres), as well as near Oregon Creek Picnic Ground in Yuba County (11 acres) and on North San Juan Ridge adjacent to Cruzon Grade, north of Malakoff Diggins State Park, in Nevada County (100 acres).

The burns will reduce the understory vegetation in order to:

• Enhance the chance of forest survival from high intensity wildfire;
• Improve wildlife habitat and forage; and
• Recreate the ecological benefits from low intensity fire.

Prescribed burn operations may begin on or after May 4, 2010, depending on current and predicted weather. The Forest Service will only initiate the burn with favorable weather conditions including humidity, temperatures, moisture in the vegetation, and wind speed and direction. Forest Service Fire Managers work diligently with Air Quality Management Districts to minimize smoke impacts to the communities.

For questions regarding these prescribed fires call Mike Cherry, District Fire Management Officer, at (530)288-3231.
