OROVILLE, Calif. - Cal Fire-Butte County will conduct a controlled burn Wednesday in the area of Loafer Creek, east of Lake Oroville.

According to Cal Fire, several areas of grass and oak woodland will be burning, totaling 112 acres.

Crews are burning the area to improve natural habitat, rangelands and to reduce future fire hazard.

Smoke from the burn will be visible in the Kelly Ridge and Greater Oroville areas of the burn, officials said.

The controlled burn began on Tuesday and will last until the end of Wednesday.

Clear skies have allowed for much cooler temperatures to start your Tuesday, but clouds will quickly increase through the day. Rain and snow will return to northern California this evening, and we'll get cooler on Wednesday. More rain and some high elevation snow will be ahead for the rest of this week and weekend. Models are keeping our region wet through at least the start of next week!
