Plumas National Forest shares burn photos

According to a statement from the Plumas National Forest, “Test fires this morning were successful on the Butterfly Valley Prescribed Burn on the Mount Hough Ranger District near Quincy. Firefighters report that high humidity this morning resulted in a slow start, but weather conditions look great for the rest of the day.  The plan is still to treat approximately 90 acres today. Firefighters will be prioritizing securing the line and mop up adjacent to private property before starting to down staff for the night.

Patrols will continue through the weekend, but ignitions have paused due to concerns about impacts to recreation users in the area and the benefits of predicted rain early next week.
