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.
