OROVILLE, Calif. – CAL FIRE crews will conduct a control burn Monday south of the Oroville Airport.

CAL FIRE, the California Department of Fish and Wildfire, and the California Department of Water Resources will burn 30 acres at the Rabe Road Shooting Range south of the Oroville Airport.

Crews said the burn will clear the area around the shooting range of thick annual grass that could easily ignite if not removed. The project will also provide training for firefighters as they prepare for what could be a busy fire season.

Due to the burn, the shooting range will be closed to the public all day Monday, May 24.

The first weekend of autumn was pleasant for northern California, but our relatively tranquil weather will change soon. A Pacific storm is approaching the West Coast, and it will bring our area rain showers and gusty wind soon.
