Angelus Oaks Prescribed Fire

Forest Service Fire crews are conducting a prescribed fire today as part of the Angelus Oaks Fuel Reduction project as weather and conditions permit.
Burning will continue throughout the winter with completion expected by May 2015. The project area is located along Forest Road 1N12 located immediately north of the Angelus Oaks community.
Smoke and flames will be visible to residents and motorists along State Route 38 and may be visible from other mountain communities and highways.
Firefighters will be using a technique called “hand burning” using a variety of tools such as the drip torch and fusses to reduce the chemise component in the chaparral system.
Crews will continually monitor conditions and adjust burning as based on favorable weather conditions. Doing this work under these favorable weather conditions reduces the risk of a catastrophic wildfire threatening mountain communities under typical, dryer and windy conditions common to the area in the summer and fall fire seasons
