In an effort to control invasive weeds Cal Fire crews along with the Nature Conservancy will burn 626 acres of grass in the Dye Creek Area Wednesday.

On Thursday Cal Fire and the Nature Conservancy will burn 464 acres of grass on the Nature Conservancy's Vina Plains Preserve. The burn will take place east of Highway 99E in the Vina area.

The purpose of the burns is to improve rangeland and reduce noxious grass species for better cattle grazing. In addition, it gives returning seasonal firefighters live fire training in preparation for fire season.

Both burns will be completed by 3 p.m.
