Click here to print this information
Yesterday, PNF firefighters conducted prescribed burns on Ingalls (north of Lake Davis), Empire (northeast of Quincy) and Watdog (west of Little Grass Valley Reservoir).
The purpose of the projects was to build and reinforce fuel-breaks to protect the local communities.
While occasional smoke impacts are never pleasant, the smoke was and continues to be far lighter than during a wildfire.
In addition, PNFs fuels planners work very closely with air quality to monitor impacts.
In addition to the prescribed burns, PNF also responded to the Bar 2 Fire near Gansner Bar.
The small brush fire was burning Off Forest Service Road 27N26.
Engines and Crews responded to the scene along with a Helicopter.
We will be giving you an update on the Bar 2 Fire as more information comes available.
