Crane Flat Prescribed Fire
Fire Management is planning for a 20-acre prescribed fire near the Crane Flat Lookout along the access road to the Helibase and Garnett Ridge Road (adjacent to the Merced Grove). Depending on weather and smoke dispersion, this project is planned to start Wednesday January 20th. Ignition could last 4-5 days with smoke lingering in the area for 7-14 days.
