Whiskeytown National Recreation Area - Pile burns

WHISKEYTOWN NATIONAL RECREATION AREA — Smoke rising over Redding’s western skyline early this afternoon is from a string of controlled burns lit by crews at Whiskeytown National Recreation Area.

Fire crews at the park about eight miles west of Redding are burning debris piles and lighting five- to 10-acre control burns, said Carol Jandrall, Whiskeytown spokeswoman.

She said the fires are on Whiskeytown’s east boundary and aimed at reducing the risk of wildfire for Shasta and western Redding.
