Controlled burn takes place above Lucerne


LUCERNE – A controlled burn that took place above Lucerne Wednesday is scheduled to continue Thursday.

The fire, which the Northshore Fire District's Lucerne office reported was taking place on the Jones Ranch, was noticeable along the Northshore. But officials said there is nothing to worry about.

Late in the day, a Cal Fire helicopter and plane were dispatched over the area to look for what was believed to be a wildland fire.

Cal Fire's incident command center said that fire turned out to be another controlled burn near Paradise Cove.
