74 Acre Prescribed Burn Planned For Tuesday Near Shasta College

Cal-Fire/Shasta County Fire is planning to conduct two prescribed burns Tuesday. If conditions are right, 74 acres will be torched just north of Shasta College on the Ross Ranch Property and 140 acres will be torched east of Whitmore in the Latour State Demonstration Forest. The goal of each vegetation management project is to reduce fuels that could feed wildfires, and to provide live fire training for new personnel.
