The purpose of the prescribed fire is to suppress the spread of invasive weeds, improve the quality of wildlife habitat, and continue to reduce the accumulation of thatch and plant fuels. The project will encompass approximately 80 acres of open grasslands and oak savanna located at the junction of Berryessa Knoxville Road and East Side Road. No road closures are planned, and CalFire crew members will assist with traffic control on the East Side Road.
During the burn period, smoke may be visible in Napa, Solano and Yolo counties. Reclamation and CalFire staff will monitor the smoke generated by the fire, which may exist during the burn and possibly continue for several days. The American Lung Association recommends those with respiratory problems such as asthma, emphysema and bronchitis and also those with chronic heart disease monitor their breathing and exposure to airborne matter and avoid inhalation of smoke, ashes and particulate matter. Residents near the burn area are encouraged to keep doors and windows closed during the prescribed fire.
