U.S Forest Service planning controlled burns this week
Smoke may be visible this week from Ortega Highway and the I-5 and I-15 freeways from prescribed burns the U.S. Forest Service is planning to conduct throughout the week in the Trabuco Ranger District.
This is expected to be a 7-acre burn in the Santa Ana Mountain Range. A prescribed burn, also called a controlled burn, is a wildfire set deliberately to reduce future wildfire hazards.
