Prescribed fire planned on East Shore

Weather permitting, U.S. Forest Service fuels management crews plan to conduct prescribed fire operations on five acres of land in the Skyland, Nev., area Tuesday, June 10.

Forest Service staff will post road signs around the areas affected by the prescribed fire, send email notifications and update the local fire information line. Smoke may be visible in surrounding communities.

Prescribed fire and other fuels treatments help reduce the severity of wildfires and minimize adverse impacts on public health and safety.
