Pile burning set for Glenshire

Controlled burns are expected to begin again in Glenshire Wednesday.

The 9-acre burn will be along Donnington Lane between Somerset Drive and The Strand beginning Wednesday, and likely lasting through Friday, said Geoff Stephens, the general manager for the Glenshire Devonshire Residents Association.

The burn is still awaiting an OK from the Northern Sierra Air Quality Management District, Stephens said, but the new snow should help manage the burn.

“We finally have enough snow to begin the second phase,” Stephens said.

This burn is part of a 15-acre effort west of The Strand and north of Donnington Lane, and between Donnington Lane and Kent Drive, Stephens told the Sun in a December interview.

Chuck Thomas, assistant fire marshall for the Truckee Fire Protection District, told the Sun in December that snow reduces fire danger “so things that aren’t supposed to burn don’t burn.”
