YREKA, Calif. – A prescribed burn will take place in Siskiyou County next week, weather permitting.
The location is White Rock Road at the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Shooting Range near Grenada.
Smoke is expected to be visible from Interstate 5 and on Old Highway 99.
The prescribed burn will include grasses and juniper said CAL FIRE officials.
If there are indications that the burn cannot be conducted in a safe manner, such as high winds or local fire activity, the burn will be cancelled.
The project has been divided into sections that will be burned when climate conditions are optimal in order to ensure control, limit the possibility of the fire escaping, and to manage smoke for air quality in the area.
