In the coming days, crews will be making fires to burn fuels and brush piles in Montaña de Oro and Hearst San Simeon State Parks, said park officials last Monday.
Firefighters will burn around 120 brush piles and understory burning fuels and decomposing plant matter to lower the risk of fire.
The burns are anticipated to begin from April 5 to 19. However, the days of burns could change depending on the weather.
The CAL FIRE crews will be conducting the burnings from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., but they also said that glowing piles could be visible throughout the night.
They will hold Montaña de Oro State Park burns in the eucalyptus forest along Pecho Valley Rd. near the park’s entrance and camp keep.
In Hearst San Simeon State Park, the burns will be conducted inside the Monterey pine forest near the northern junction of Hwy 1 and Moonstone Beach Dr.
California State Parks is planning the burns with the San Luis Obispo County APCD and CAL FIRE.
