BLM Plans Pile Burns in Kern River Valley


The Bureau of Land Management plans to burn fuel piles in the Wofford Heights and Wagy Flat areas during the upcoming winter and spring months.

Piles created from fuel reduction projects will be burned to dispose of fuels along roadsides and constructed fuelbreaks. Operations are scheduled to begin during the week of Dec. 10 on a project adjacent to Old State Road, approximately 5.5 miles west of Wofford Heights. 

Additional operations later in the season may include burning piles around the Wagy Flat community. Smoke may be visible in the area.
