USFS: LTBMU Conducting Precribed Burns Today Near Truckee

U.S. Forest Service fuels management crews will be conducting prescribed fire operations in the North Upper Truckee area today and possibly through Friday depending on weather conditions. Crews are looking to accomplish approximately 2 acres each day.
 
Residents and visitors can expect to see smoke from prescribed fire project areas.  Smoke management is part of every prescribed fire burn plan, and efforts will be taken to reduce actual or potential smoke impacts on community areas. 
 
This and other prescribed fire projects are designed to reduce wildfire risks to communities and critical resources. 
 
State and local fire management agencies may also be conducting prescribed fire work during this period.

****REMINDER**** Every fire has the ability to be catastrophic. The wildland fire management environment has profoundly changed. Growing numbers of communities, across the nation, are experiencing longer fire seasons; more frequent, bigger, and more severe, fires are a real threat. Be careful with all campfires and equipment.
