For your information. We have received the following News Release from the U.S. Forest Service regarding a Prescribed Fire that will take place beginning Monday, April 8, 2013.

Prescribed Fire Planned Near Angelus Oaks

San Bernardino, Calif., April 1, 2013 – Forest Service Fire crews are planning to burn approximately 120 acres as part of the Angelus Oaks Fuel Reduction project.  Weather and conditions permitting, firefighters expect the project to last one week, and are planning to work to begin as early as April 8.

The project area is located along Forest Road 1N12 located immediately north of the Angelus Oaks community.  Smoke and flames will be visible to residents and motorists along State Route 38 and may be visible from other mountain communities and highways.

Firefighters will be using a technique called “hand burning” using a variety of tools such as the drip torch and fusses to reduce the chemise component in the chaparral system.  Crews will continually monitor conditions and adjust burning as based on favorable weather conditions.

“Doing this work under these favorable  weather conditions reduces the risk of a catastrophic wildfire threatening mountain communities under typical, dryer and windy conditions common to the area in the summer and fall fire seasons.  ,” stated Front Country District Ranger Gabe Garcia. “The understory burn is part of a larger 535 acre project initiated in 2004 and will maintain that work we have all invested in to improve the survivability of Angelus Oaks”, Garcia added.

The Angelus Oaks Fuel Reduction project has reduced fuels around the Angelus Oaks community. Pile burning and broadcast burning are part of fuels treatments that include mechanical removal of vegetation. Fuel reduction projects near mountain communities include removing dead trees as well as thinning and stacking piles of dense brush, and burning the piles in the wet season.
