Two Separate VMP Burns In Calaveras

Two Separate VMP Burns In Calaveras 

A reminder from CAL FIRE today, two separate prescribed burns at opposite ends of Calaveras County are taking place. The burns are meant to reduce ground-level fuels, creating a fire-resilient, healthier forest environment. The Winton Vegetation Management Plan (VMP) site is located in northeast Calaveras County, four miles north of Wilseyville near Winton, Schaads, and Bailey Roads. According to CAL FIRE, this burn project will last throughout the fall depending on the weather. On the southern side of the county, CAL FIRE is conducting a prescribed burn at Big Trees State Park on the South Park VMP. It will last until Nov. 25, and is located northeast of Arnold. Burning will be conducted primarily during the hours of 10 A.M. – 5 P.M. on both burns, though CAL FIRE says some fire activity may be visible at night, and smoke will be present for several days after the prescribed burning.
