TEHAMA COUNTY, Calif. – The Cal Fire Tehama Glenn Unit will partner with the Nature Conservancy to conduct two control burns Wednesday and Thursday. Residents can expect to see smoke.

Cal Fire crews will burn 523 acres of grass on June 10. It will take place in the Vina Plains off Highway 99 and Lassen Road, Cal Fire officials said.

Following Wednesday's controlled burn, crews will burn 949 acres on June 11 of grass off 3rd Ave. in Los Molinos. The burn will be conducted weather permitting.

Fire officials said burning will start at 10 a.m. and should be completed by 5 p.m. each day.

Cal Fire conducts the control burns with cooperating land managers under the vegetation management program. The purpose of the burns is to improve rangeland and reduce noxious gas species for better cattle grazing.
