BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - CAL FIRE Butte Unit said they will conduct a control burn at Camelot Equestrian Park on Saturday, Nov. 23.

Crews will burn 371 acres of grass as part of CAL FIRE Butte Unit's Vegetation Management Program. The burn operation is set to start around 10 a.m. and CAL FIRE said smoke will be visible in the Butte Valley area throughout the day on Saturday.

The controlled burn will be located at 1985 Clark Road between Durham Pentz Road and Highway 70 near Butte College.

The residential burn suspension in the unincorporated areas of Butte County is still in effect, CAL FIRE said.

"This controlled burn is being conducted in accordance with section 4423.2 of the Public Resources Code where CAL FIRE may issue restricted temporary burning permits whenever it can be shown that burning or use of open fire is essential for reasons of public health, safety, or welfare," CAL FIRE announced in a press release.

CAL FIRE will be conducting this control burn to reduce hazardous vegetation and will be present while the controlled burn is being conducted
