Hogan Fireworks Fuels Reduction Burn To Be Ignited Today

Smoke will be visible in the Valley Springs area today from a prescribed burn to prepare for a 4th of July fireworks display.  The Hogan Fireworks Fuels Reduction burn will be ignited by CAL Fire today, around New Hogan Reservoir.  The goal is to clear hazardous fuels on the area used during the “Fireworks over New Hogan” pyrotechnics show.   The burn will be ignited between the 8:00 and 10:00 this morning and last through the early afternoon.  Control lines will also be in place along with the lake’s shoreline to help prevent any possible spread of fire from areas outside the fireworks show burn site.  Resources on scene will include the United States Army Corps of Engineers, Calaveras County Air Pollution Control District, and Calaveras Consolidated Fire District.
