Prescribed Burn Scheduled Next Week in Los Padres National Forest

Los Padres National Forest officials announced today that fire crews will conduct a prescribed burn next week (weather permitting) on approximately 2,100 acres near Pine Canyon Road and Horseshoe Spring Campground on the Santa Lucia Ranger District. The burn is scheduled to begin Wednesday, January 23, 2013. Smoke will be visible from the Santa Maria/Orcutt area.

The project area is approximately 15 miles east of Santa Maria near Pine Canyon Road south of Highway 166 and east of Tepusquet Road. The purpose of the burn is to reduce hazardous fuels, lessen impacts of a future wildfire in the area, improve wildlife habitat, and enhance and protect the Lower Cuyama River watershed.

Residual smoke may be visible in the area for up to two weeks.

Forest visitors are advised to call the Santa Lucia Ranger Station at (805) 925-9538 to obtain current information during the burn operation.
