Cal Fire conducts controlled burn

SOUTH LAKE COUNTY – A large fire many area residents spotted in the south county area near The Geysers on Friday is a controlled burn, according to fire officials.


Cal Fire told Lake County News that the burn covers a few hundred acres and is being overseen by agency helicopters, hand crews and engines.


The burn is being conducted in order to reduce brush and other fuels in the area, according to Cal Fire.


Officials expect the burn to be completed by about 3 p.m. Friday.


Cal Fire conducted another controlled burn in the same vicinity last month, as Lake County News reported.
