Controlled burns in the works for Mt. Pinos District

The Los Padres National Forest will launch a series of prescribed burn projects beginning in December to eliminate piled brush on the Mt. Pinos Ranger District.

This process will involve crews lighting piled brush when weather conditions and air quality are suitable for safely burning these fuels.

The project locations are near Pine Mountain, Frazier Park and Lake of the Woods. There will also be burning on top of Frazier Mountain as part of an effort to reduce accumulated ground fuels.
