Pile Burning Continues on Mi-Wok/Summit Ranger District

Sonora, CA…With pile burning operations nearly complete in the Cedar Ridge area, crews with the Stanislaus National Forest’s Mi-Wok/Summit Ranger District will turn their attention to other locations on the corridor. Over the next few days, fire crews will begin pile burning operations in the Sandbar Flat Campground as well as the Crandall OHV area.

“These units are part of our Spring Gap Burn units,” explained Mi-Wok District Fire Management Officer, Dan Guse. “We’ll look to accomplish about 200 acres over the next few days, targeting 5-20 acres daily.”

Smoke may be visible near the area of the burn piles, please do not report as a wildfire. The Stanislaus National Forest in conjunction with Tuolumne County Public Health has created a robust smoke ready website with resources and more information. Visit our smoke ready page.
