Control Burn Scheduled in Cohasset on Feb. 15

Butte County February 14, 2018 – CAL FIRE/Butte County Fire Department will be conducting a controlled burn on February 15th, 2018. The planned burn is 27 acres along Cohasset Road, approximately 10 miles northeast of the community of Cohasset. The burn will begin at 10:00 a.m.

The controlled burn will provide training and reduce hazardous vegetation to maintain a shaded-fuel break in the area.

“Reducing forest fuels during the winter months will lessen the impacts of wildfires occurring during periods of high fire danger”, stated Battalion Chief Joe Tapia.

Smoke from the controlled burn will be highly visible in northern Butte County and eastern Tehama County.
