SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. – The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection will conduct a 600-acre prescribed burn operation Friday, June 19.

It will take place at the City of Redding Solid Waste facility at 14095 Clear Creek Road in the Igo community, Cal Fire officials said.

Residents in Igo, Happy Valley, and Cottonwood can expect minimal smoke though it will be visible for the duration of the burn. Mornings winds from the northwest, and afternoon winds from the southeast is the estimated direction of smoke travel, according to Cal Fire.

The burning is expected to start at 8 a.m. and should be completed by 5 p.m.

The purpose of this burn is to reduce dead and down wildland fuels, reduce the fire hazard to the landfill, mitigate noxious and evasive weed species, and provide live fire training for fire personnel in a controlled manner.
