CalFire Wraps Up Control Burn Of Consumnes River Drainage

Cal Fire wrapped up a controlled burn on Sierra Pacific Industries land off of Shake Ridge Road, east of Fiddletown Road last night. Part of a 60 acre burn, crews remained on scene throughout the night though, checking for any hotspots of flare ups. The burn which started on Wednesday was in support of improving forest health and providing additional protection to the homes in that area from a wildland fire in the Consumnes River drainage. Cal Fire says they plan to conduct a number of these burns throughout the winter months in the Amador-ElDorado and Tuolumne-Calaveras units.
