BLM Plans 55-acre Prescribed Fire in Mule Mountain Area West of Redding


Fire crews from the Bureau of Land Management are planning a prescribed fire project for Monday and Tuesday, Feb. 24 and 25, in the Mule Mountain area just west of Redding.

The 55-acre broadcast burn will be within the BLM's Swasey Recreation Area about a mile west of Swasey Drive. Smoke will be visible from Redding and the Centerville, Middletown Park Drive and Grant School areas.

Burning will be carried out only if weather conditions allow for safe and successful burning and smoke management.

The project is part of a series of prescribed fires designed to reduce dense brush and small trees, reducing wildfire risk and improving forest health.

For more information, contact the BLM Redding Field Office, (530) 224-2100.
