BLM Plans Pile Burning in Swasey Recreation Area


Fire crews from the Bureau of Land Management will burn piles of brush and limbs in in the Swasey Recreation Area of west Redding on Wednesday, May 29.

The piles will be ignited only if weather allows for safe and successful burning and smoke dispersion.

The project area is about a mile west of Swasey Drive and a mile east of Mule Mountain.

The debris piles were created in project work to improve forest health and to reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfire.

For more information, contact the BLM Redding Field Office, (530) 22402100.
