Fire crews from the US National Forest are back out on the forest taking advantage of weather conditions. They continue to conduct prescribed fires to burn slash piles made from vegetation thinned from the San Bernardino National Forest. The work is being done to maintain facility and community defense throughout the forest.
Smoke and flames may be visible day and night during burning periods. Burning is planned throughout the week at several locations in the San Bernardino National Forest.
• Big Bear area neighborhoods of Moonridge, the ski resorts, Sugarloaf and Erwin Lake — 100 acres.
• Forest Road 1N09 (City Creek Road) at Highway 330 — 20 acres.
• Angelus Oaks, east side of Highway 38 behind residences — 30 acres in 300 piles.
