LAKEHEAD, Calif - You may be able to see and smell smoke this weekend due to a prescribed fire project being conducted by the U.S. Forest Service Shasta-Trinity Unit in Lakehead.

The burn started Friday, Feb 21 and will continue into Saturday. Firefighters are burning an estimated 400 acres as a part of a larger 3,000-acre project to help create a healthy forest.

According to the U.S. Forest service, the main goal of this project is to "reduce the continuity of vegetation using prescribed fire near the community of Lakehead. This treatment will improve forest health and wildlife habitats by creating a mosaic of vegetation conditions which should also decrease the severity of future wildfires and provide support to the community of Lakehead in their efforts to create defensible space in the wildland-urban interface."
