Following Friday night’s and Saturday morning’s rain, the U.S. Forest Service, San Jacinto Ranger District, burned some piles of forest and wood debris.

“We burned 70 piles at Lawler [Lodge]; that completes that project for us,” said   Dan Felix, district fire chief. “The rain will definitely help for a while, it is just a matter of how much drying occurs ’til the next rain.”

Plans have been made for future burn opportunities near Keenwild Fire Station.

Implementing the burns always depends upon suitable weather. Slightly more than half an inch of rainfall on the Hill enables the Forest Service to safely conduct these burns.

I have some questions like how much in advance do you need the information? How much will it cost to put an ad in your paper. Please respond at your ASAP. Thank You,
