Prescribed Burn Information
updated: Jan 31, 2013, 8:22 PM

SB County FD

LOS ALAMOS, Ca. January 31, 2013 - The Santa Barbara County Fire Department has issued a burn permit to The Santa Barbara County Range Improvement Association (RIA) to conduct a prescribed burn of approximately 90 acres.

The burn is scheduled to begin on February 1, 2013 at approximately 9 am. The project is located on the Bar-M Ranch, approximately 2 miles south of Los Alamos. Members of the RIA will be conducting the burn. The burn has control lines in place that were created by dozers and graders. Ranch roads also surround the burn area. The Santa Barbara County Fire Department and The Range Improvement Association will provide firefighting equipment.

The vegetation to be burned consists of light to medium fuels such as Coyote Brush and Button Sage. Friday's projected weather forecast for the burn area is sunny and 70 degrees with 30% relative humidity. Variable southwest winds ranging from 1 to 5 mph in the morning changing to northwest in the late afternoon are expected.

Smoke will be visible from US Highway 101 and some parts of northern Santa Barbara County. This project is part of a fuels management process and will benefit the local watershed, wildlife, and livestock grazing areas.

The Santa Barbara County Fire Department has coordinated and assisted the Range Improvement Association for many years with these types of projects. These burns offer many training opportunities to Fire Department personnel and help develop positive working relationships with members of our communities. The burn is expected to be extinguished by 5 pm.
