MENDOCINO CO., 6/25/19 — Cal Fire will be conducting a controlled burn at Lake Mendocino from 6 to 9 pm on Thursday, June 27. The burn will take place at Coyote Dam, and smoke may be visible throughout the Ukiah area and Redwood Valley.
The agency will be coordinating with the Army Corps of Engineers to reduce brush and vegetation from around the dam, which reduces fire risk and makes maintenance and inspections easier. Cal Fire typically conducts a controlled burn in this area at least once a year.
