Click here to print this information
On Tuesday, smoke filled the air of the Quincy/American Valley while Plumas National Forest Firefighters conducted a 38 acre prescribed burn near Peppard Flat Rd.
However, crews stopped burning early in the day as smoke wasn't dispersing as forecast.
Then, on Wednesday, fire crews conducted more prescribed burning on the Plumas National Forest near the Silver Lake (Meadow Valley area) burning piles.
Their hope was to conduct the burns prior to the arrival of the next storm system.
Luckily, firefighters also had more favorable dispersal conditions, so the smoke did not linger as badly as it did on Tuesday.
