Butte County, Calif.
—Cal Fire Butte County Fire Department would like the public to be aware of a controlled burn that will take place on Wednesday May 16th.

Cal Fire Butte County Fire Department will be conducting a 15 acre controlled burn on Steiffer Road in Magalia.

The control burn will begin at 10 a.m. and last most of the day.
