Spooner Prescribed Burn Scheduled

Port San Luis – On Saturday, February 29th, 2020, firefighters plan to conduct up to 270 acres of prescribed burning on PG&E property just west of Diablo Canyon Power Plant. This is the 4th in an 11-year-long series of cooperative burns along the south side of Montana de Oro State Park intended reduce the fire hazard, protect vital infrastructure, restore decadent Bishop pine stands, and reduce the chances of a large wildfire in the Irish Hills.
This 1-day burn has been planned in cooperation with SLO County APCD to minimize potential smoke impacts to the public. Smoke may be present throughout the day along the Hwy 101 corridor from Avila Beach to Santa Maria. If smoke dispersal is not adequate, burning will be curtailed or rescheduled.
