From the USFS:
"The U.S. Forest Service, Tahoe National Forest, Yuba River Ranger District is planning to start the Bullards Bar Prescribed Fire Project today. This project includes approximately 70 acres of underburning at Vista Point, north of Marysville Road, in Yuba County.
Dependent upon favorable weather and air quality conditions, the district hopes to complete the project this spring. Goals include reducing hazardous fuels, habitat improvement, and reintroducing fire as a natural ecological process.
The legal locations for the project are T18N, R7E, sections 24. If you have any questions about this project please contact Mike Cherry, District Fire Management Officer or Janet Cowell, District Fuels Officer at 530-288-3231."
