On March 19, 2013, the Shasta Lake Unit of the National Recreation Area on the Shasta-Trinity National Forest may be conducting a prescribed fire to remove understory fuels on National Forest System lands in the area of Packers Bay.
Fire Managers plan to burn portions of Units E & F beginning on March 19, 2013.
The prescribed fire will create smoke that will be visible from many areas in the southern portion of Shasta Lake and along Interstate 5 near Bridge Bay. Implementation is planned to take approximately four to six hours, but smoke may continue to be visible through the following few days.
