Los Padres National Forest to Conduct Controlled Burns

Los Padres National Forest officials announced the decision to conduct several prescribed burn projects over the next several months to eliminate piled brush on the Mt. Pinos Ranger District.

The brush was cut and piled while constructing fuel breaks around local communities. This process will involve crews lighting piled brush when weather conditions and air quality are suitable for safely burning these fuels.

The project locations are adjacent to Pine Mountain Club, Frazier Park, and Lake of the Woods.

Burning may begin as early as January 27. If you have questions about the projects, please contact Division Chief John Abell at (661) 245-3731.

For additional information, contact the Mt. Pinos District Office at (661) 245-3731.
