BLM Planning Prescribed Burn Northwest of Eagle Lake

Fire crews from the Bureau of Land Management plan to conduct a prescribed burn on public lands northwest of Eagle Lake on a permissible burn day during the last two weeks in April.

The broadcast burn will be ignited only if weather allows for safe and successful burning.

The North Eagle Burn will cover about 25 to 100 acres about three miles northwest of the Stones-Bengard Community. The size of the burn will depend on fuel conditions and weather. The objective is to reduce pine needle litter and grasses to reduce wildfire risk and improve wildlife habitat.

Smoke will likely be visible from State Highway 139 and from the north shore of Eagle Lake.

Public lands managed by the Eagle Lake Field Office cover approximately one million acres in northeastern California and northwestern Nevada. The area offers an amazing diversity including forests, peaceful lake shorelines, scenic river canyons and expansive high deserts. These areas provide myriad recreational opportunities, and other uses including timber harvesting and livestock grazing that help meet the food and fiber needs of our nation.
