No need to report this fire seen on top of Mt. Hough...
 
Forest Service firefighters are making more progress on the game refuge prescribed burn on Mt. Hough today.
 
The smoke plume is easily visible to Indian and American Valleys and beyond.
 
The burn was designed to improve the brush, grasses and other vegetation used for food by deer and other wildlife in the Mt. Hough State Game Refuge on the Plumas National Forest.
 
Fire gets rid of the dense, tough older vegetation and causes plants to sprout, providing access and tender, more nutritious food. In addition, the area will be more “fire-safe” should a wildfire start below or within the treated area.
 

The California Deer Association and Mule Deer Foundation are partners in the project, largely accomplished last spring.  

Firefighters have already circled the burn area with control lines using existing roads and building lines where needed.  

For more information, please contact Colin Dillingham, district wildlife biologist or Steve Causemaker, district fuels officer at (530) 283-0555. A map of the project is available on the forest website at: http://www.fs.usda.gov/plumas.
