Forest service begins pile burning near Truckee

TRUCKEE, Calif. and#8212; US Forest Service pile burns are under way in the Alder Creek area.

The project, spanning from Hillside Drive down to Highway 89 north, is part of a broader fuel management effort on the northern edge of Tahoe Donner that has been ongoing for the last five years.

According to a release from Tahoe National Forest, burns will be completed in stages to aid smoke dispersal and limit smoke impacts on area residents, but smoke may be noticeable at times.

For any questions or concerns, contact Linda Ferguson at the Truckee Ranger District, (530) 587-3558.
