Dry Creek Parkway Planned Fire in Rio Linda

Rio Linda, CA – Metro Fire, in conjunction with the Sacramento County Regional Parks Department will conduct at 10-15 acre planned fire at the Dry Creek Parkway on September 10, 2018. While training will take place with this fire, the intent is to remove noxious vegetation promoting healthier revegetation in future growing cycles and remove fuels from a fire prone area.

This fire has been coordinated with the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District (SMAQMD) and the Sacramento County Agricultural Commissioner’s Office and will only occur after final approvals prior to ignition. Conducting planned fires allow Metro Fire to better control fires than if they were to occur unplanned, occur during beneficial atmospheric conditions when the smoke will be lifted to a high mixing attitude instead of remaining at low levels and affecting community members.
