BLM Plans Prescribed Fire Near French Gulch


Bureau of Land Management fire crews plan to conduct a 60-acre prescribed fire near French Gulch, Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 4 and 5.

The project area is seven miles northeast of French Gulch near the OHV 55 and 27 trails in the Chappie-Shasta Off Highway Vehicle Recreation Area.

Officials said the fire is designed to reduce wildfire risk and improve landscape health by reducing the buildup of heavy fuels.

Smoke will be visible from French Gulch.

The fire will be ignited only if weather and fuel conditions allow for safe and successful burning and smoke management.

More information is available from the BLM Redding Field Office, 224-2100.
