Prescribed brush burn scheduled for today

U.S. Forest Service crews plan to burn piles of brush that have been removed from the forest as part of a prescribed fire project to reduce fuel load and the potential for fire.

Crews will be working on the west side of Big Creek Ridge, said Kent Foster, zone fire management officer.

The Forest Service has obtained permits for the fire and must limit the effects smoke will have on people.
