Planned burn Wednesday

Weather permitting, Plumas National Forest firefighters will conduct a 150-acre understory burn, northeast of Quincy,  on Wednesday, May 10, beginning about 9 a.m. The burn will be very visible about midway up the south facing slope of Mt. Hough. Burning is expected to last one day while light smoke may linger two to three days. Smoke will likely travel northeast to north, with some smoke settling into Genesee, Indian and American Valleys in the evening. Smoke will be monitored although there should be no significant smoke impacts to the communities. Contact the Mt. Hough Ranger District with any questions at (530) 283-0555.
