Calfire works to control fire-flood cycle
SACRAMENTO – (INT) – Flames from October’s fire storm are flickering out, but Calfire’s work is not done.
Crews are shifting to clean-up and rehabilitation in anticipation of winter rains.
Brush is being removed from waterways and straw waddles laid down. That will help protect burned areas from potential flooding and erosion ahead of winter storms.
Meantime, controlled burning is being done to limit fires still burning and future ones that may occur in Northern California.
Still uncontrolled are the Helena-Fork and Buck fires in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest. Combined, those fires have burned about 35,000 acres.
