October 23, 2018 – Yuba River Ranger District is planning to begin active ignitions in our 400-acre Plum Unit Underburn on Tuesday (10/23).  The unit is located along Henness Pass Road between the community of Alleghany and Forest City.

Active ignitions will last 3-4 days or until we lose our burn window.  The unit is broken up into smaller blocks, 100 +/- each, and we will be monitoring fire behavior and smoke dispersion closely before we continue to progress from block to block.
