CAL FIRE Mendocino Unit’s Parlin Vegetation Management Program prescribed burn began at approximately noon today, Monday, October 17, 2022. The weather today presented the perfect conditions for our highly trained and fire-seasoned professionals to conduct this prescribed burn. At scene were 6 Engines, 4 Firefighter Handcrews, 1 Dozer, and multiple Chief Officers.

The burn was conducted under very tight safety restrictions. If there had been any indications that the burn could not be conducted in a safe manner, such as high winds or local fire activity, the burn would have been canceled. This burn will continue periodically, on days that weather conditions and air quality allow, through October 28, 2022, or until completed.
