Fiddyment annual training burn rescheduled for Saturday

South Placer County residents can expect to see smoke Saturday. Cal Fire/Placer County Fire rescheduled the annual Fiddyment Burn with area fire agencies and volunteer firefighters as a training exercise and fuel reduction project, according to a release.

The project will involve burning approximately 125 acres of grass between East Catlett Road and Sunset Boulevard West, on a parcel just west of the Athens Avenue-Fiddyment Road intersection. The area is north of Roseville and west of Rocklin and Lincoln.

The prescribed burn will take place between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Saturday.

The terrain allows crews to employ direct and indirect methods of firefighting and fire control, and provides agencies an opportunity to train cooperatively in incident command and fire ground tactical operations while reducing fuel loading in a field with significant fire history.
