Inyo National Forest prescribed burn: Parchers Resort
Weather and air quality conditions permitting, fire crews are planning the Parchers Resort Pile Burn starting Monday, January 11.
This burn is located in the South Fork of Bishop Creek and may last all week.
The Inyo National Forest has many prescribed fires planned for the winter and spring season to help reduce hazardous accumulations of vegetation and fuels, reduce overall fire danger to firefighters and the public, build resilience to future catastrophic wildfires, and produce less smoke than severe wildfire.
Smoke from this unit may be visible along Hwy. 168 W.
Prior to burning, much consideration goes into current and forecasted wind direction to divert much of the smoke from communities and recreation sites. The Inyo National Forest works closely with the Great Basin Unified Air Pollution Control District to select days that will provide good smoke dispersal.
