Amoruso Ranch Burn A Go For Today

Amoruso Ranch Burn A Go For Today

The Amador- El Dorado Unit of CAL FIRE has scheduled a prescribed live training burn on the Amoruso Ranch in the Fiddletown area today. Dependent upon any restrictions by the Amador County Air District and favorable fire weather conditions, the burn will start from at 9:00 A.M. until approximately 8:00 tonight. Smoke may be visible in the area.  The purpose of the burn is to train new firefighters in a controlled fire environment for preparation of peak fire season. Training burns are imperative for fire fighters to learn how to properly conduct fire suppression techniques as well as learn to keep themselves safe in an actual wildfire. This burn will also add to the fuel break within the Amoruso Ranch, reducing the chance of devastation resulting from a catastrophic wildfire to nearby communities.  If the burning conditions become unfavorable for a safe, efficient burn, operations will be immediately stopped.
