62-Acre Controlled Burn Scheduled Today
Why: In addition to helping the department contain future fires that may start on the reserve, the burn is part of vegetation study sponsored by UCR, the release said.
The burn is part of vegetation study sponsored by University of California Riverside.
“This burn will be an integral part of the information gathering process. In addition, the fuel-modified zone will better enable the fire department to keep fires that might start in the reserve into moving into the surrounding communities,” according to a Cal Fire news release.
Smoke: Residents throughout Southwest Riverside are expected to see smoke coming from a 62-acre controlled burn Wednesday.
