When: Cal Fire-Butte County will stage several small fires either today or Wednesday during the late morning and early afternoon hours, if the weather is cooperative.
Battalion Chief Darren Read said the training was supposed to start Monday, but it was it was too windy. Although the training was originally planned for the entire week, Read said they may combine the training so it's all done in one day.
Why: Read said every year Cal Fire offers between four to six weeks of wildland fire investigation classes.
For the training, officials will use different ways to start fires and the students will follow fire indicators to the area of origin to find out where the fire started.
Where: Read said the training will be off Chuck Yeager Way, near the Oroville Airport
What: Smoke from the burns should be visible to residents and businesses near the airport and Oroville Industrial Park.
Read said forecasters are predicting slight, light wind and they plan to have the burns today unless something changes.
