Pile burning continues on the Plumas

The Plumas National Forest has been able to continue with its pile burning plans despite heavy rain over the past few weeks. Firefighters were able to complete approximately 6 acres of pile burning near Brush Creek Work Center today.  The piles will be monitored throughout the holiday weekend and smoke is expected in the area for the next few days.

Conditions permitting, ignitions could begin again Wednesday, Jan. 18,  to treat the remaining 13 acres of piles.
