Posted: Updated:

The Tahoe National Forest Yuba River Ranger District is planning to burn 75 acres adjacent to Highway 20, above Skillman campground off of Burlington Ridge today.

Prescribed fire operations will only take place if weather, fuel conditions, and smoke dispersal remain favorable.

Smoke will be visible in the Highway 20 area from Nevada City to Interstate 80.

The Yuba River Ranger District strives to minimize the impacts of smoke on local communities and will be monitoring smoke and weather daily.
