Firefighters will be conducting the prescribed burn Tuesday to Saturday in Rancho Corte Madera, southwest of Pine Valley, according to Cal Fire. 

The prescribed burn is part of a Vegetation Management Burn plan.

“This burn is being conducted to provide a fuel break to help protect the surrounding communities,” said Capt. Mike Mohler.
