Cal-Fire/Shasta County Fire is planning to conduct a prescribed burn just north of Shasta College Tuesday. The goal of the Ross Ranch Vegetation Management Project is to reduce fuels that could feed wildfires, and to provide live fire training for new personnel. If conditions are right, 74 acres will be torched.
A prescribed burn planned for east of Redding last week will also likely happen Tuesday. The Latour Vegetation Treatment Project is located east of Whitmore in the Latour State Demonstration Forest. Cal-Fire plans to torch 140 acres at that site.
