BLM Planning Pile-Burning Projects in Northern California, Northwest Nevada

Fire crews from the Bureau of Land Management will conduct prescribed burning projects in Modoc, Siskiyou, and Lassen counties, California, and in Washoe County, Nevada, during winter and early spring. These projects will involve burning piles of brush and limbs created during projects to reduce wildfire danger and to improve wildlife habitat.

The BLM will ignite prescribed fires only when weather allows for safe and successful burning. These burning projects are part of the BLM’s commitment to keeping the public lands healthy and productive.

Lassen County:
The Ash Valley pile-burning project will include about 4,300 acres, about 35 miles south of Alturas.

Modoc County:
The Northeast Warner Mountain Project will encompass about 300 acres on public land, about five miles southwest of Fort Bidwell.
The North Cowhead Project will involve 600 acres, seven miles northeast of Fort Bidwell.
The Westside Project will cover about 500 acres, about five miles southwest of Alturas.

Siskiyou County:
The Modoc Gulch Project will cover about 380 acres in a 2,800-acre project area, about three miles southeast of Dorris.

Washoe County:
The BLM has planned three pile-burning projects near Vya, all in an area 10 to 25 miles east of Cedarville.

Projects include;  Calcutta, about 800 acres; Board Corral, 400-acres and the 49 Mountain project, about 150 acres.
